Deer Oaks offers free guidance and resources for employees and dependents

Following the recent earthquake, Deer Oaks and the University of Alaska would like to remind everyone of their Employee Assistance Program benefits which are available to employees and other family members if needed during this stressful time. The EAP benefit covers up to 12 confidential, no-cost, short-term counseling visits.

It is common to experience emotional distress following traumatic events. Substantial stress may limit one's ability to cope and negatively impact the work environment. A stress reaction can appear anytime following the event.

EAP offers the following services:
• In-the-moment telephonic support
• Short-term counseling
• Disaster relief organizations and agencies
• Referrals to relocation and housing
• Referrals to contractors and restoration professionals
• Online articles and information

For additional information, or a referral to a provider, call EAP toll-free at 1-888-993-7650.
Online tools are available at the Deer Oaks website (log-in and password: UofA).
