As a reminder, our continued partnership with Saint Luke’s Health System, Human Resources and UM Total Rewards offers an EAP service to all faculty, staff, and dependents. Program benefits include access to professional counselors trained to assist with stress, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, work concerns, financial issues, and family or relationship difficulties.
