Employee Assistance Program

YBH Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential, employer-sponsored program that is designed to support employees with personal, short-term problems that affect their work performance. Typical issues of focus in the EAP are marital discord, mild to moderate substance use, and the emotional stress associated with financial problems. More significant behavioral health concerns, such as moderate to severe depression and anxiety or chronic substance use, lead to a referral to a behavioral health treatment provider. Yale designs each EAP to address the unique needs of the employer. The goals are to maintain a healthy workforce, increase employee retention, increase productivity and organizational performance, and decrease costs. YBH draws upon its extensive clinical, administrative and managed care experience in providing this service.
