Mental Health Matters Podcast: EAP Part 3

 

As part of our year-long Mental Health Matters series, staff writer David Singer has created a four-part podcast examining one of the mental health services offered by Washington Health System–the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

In Episode 3, Singer talks with Caitlin, a an administrative assistant in Greene County, who talks about her experience with EAP services and how it helped her with depression and anxiety.

Highlights: • Caitlin is not employed where she would benefit from EAP services, but her mom is. Any relative of someone employed with EAP benefits can use counseling services.

• Caitlin's mom was the one who suggested she seek counseling after she observed a few breakdowns.

• Considering herself an organized person, that's partly where her anxiety stems from, Caitlin said. Keeping organized and having measures to cope when she feels overwhelmed is crucial to managing

her anxiety.
