Employee Assistance Program

What is an Employee Assistance Program?

EAP provides you and your household members with free, confidential assistance to help with personal or professional problems that may interfere with work or family responsibilities. Historically thought of as only providing Mental Health services, EAP is now much more. You will find Legal advice, Childcare/Eldercare resources, Financial and much more in this resource.

The program is a FREE benefit provided and paid for by FCPS.  If assistance is needed beyond the provided counseling visits, the GuidanceConsultant will assist you in finding a resource covered through your insurance.
