Employee Assistance Program

District Employees,

The district has changed our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider from Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care (RUBHC) to Penn Medicine Princeton Health Employee Assistance Program. This service is available to all district employees. 

What is an Employee Assistance Program you might ask? According to the Center for Prevention and Health (2008), “Employee assistance programs (EAPs) began in the 1940s by providing employee services that primarily focused on the effect of alcohol use and abuse on job performance. Over time, this emphasis was broadened to include other personal issues that negatively affect job performance.”

The goal of Penn Medicine Princeton Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is to, “Help improve and maintain productivity and healthy functioning in the workplace and address specific personnel issues through video telehealth counseling. When it is safe, face-to-face counseling will be available. All contact with the EAP program is completely confidential and free of charge to the employee.” 

Penn Medicine Princeton Employee Assistance Program offers support for employees in resolving issues including, but not limited to:

  • Work-related stress
  • Alcohol and/or drug problems
  • Mental health and emotional concerns
  • Legal and financial issues
  • Relationship problems
  • Stress management

Moreover, the Employee Assistance Program offers a full array of work/life services including a member portal which allows 24/7 access to thousands of up-to-date, topic-related articles, videos, podcasts, calculators, webinars and worksheets related to: Financial & Legal Family & Education Health & Wellness Career & Military, Everyday Living & more. 

It is important to note that, Penn Medicine Princeton Employee Assistance Program is separate from your medical benefits and there is no cost to you for seeking counseling or advice. As an employee, you are encouraged to consider utilizing Penn Medicine Princeton Employee Assistance Program services if you feel the need. Clinicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Penn Medicine Princeton Employee Assistance Program phone number is 1-800-527-0035. It should be noted that all phone calls are highly confidential and are not shared with school district officials. If you decide to call, please identify yourself as an EAP client. 

In closing, on behalf of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township School District’s Central Office Administration, we thank you for your dedication and commitment and wish you the best this coming school year.
