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 further help is needed, your health insurance plan may cover a portion of the costs.
