Most people think of an EAP as a place to call when they have a crisis or an urgent need for emotional or mental health support.  The Cigna Employee Assistance Program (EAP) removes the stigma that often comes with the term EAP. 


The focus of this program includes:

ü  Work/life balance

ü  Improved lifestyle

ü  Better physical and mental health

ü  Total well-being


Confidential assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week when using the Cigna (EAP).   This is a service provided as part of your benefits to you or any member of your household at no additional cost. You can turn to Cigna (EAP) for help with anything that interferes with your job or personal life such as:


Stress management                       Family or parenting issues

Substance abuse/misuse             Work/life balance

Burnout                                               Marital/relationship problems

Child and elder care                        Anxiety

Depression                                         Anger management

Legal concerns                                 Financial issues

Coping with change                        Self-esteem



Sometimes life can become work and work can become your life. Either way, we’re here to help you balance the two.  Maybe you just need someone to talk to about a recent transition or conflict at work, or maybe you’re looking for some guidance with your personal relationships.  When you call, a trained professional will confidentially help you assess your needs and provide referrals to local counselors at your request.  We have community and professional services available, such as psychologists, marriage and family therapists and substance abuse counselors, to help you balance your work and home life.
