The Ohio State Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers a variety of resources to help improve mental health, reduce stress, and many work-life issues via the EAP Portal. The portal provides 24/7 access to articles, tips, webinars, videos, forms, worksheets, and more on a variety of health and work-life topics. Including, but not limited to, parenting, caretaking, physical and mental health, finances, legal concerns, career, and community resources, etc.

Maybe you would like to learn how to rolldown your credit card debt, well there is a financial calculator to help you with that. Need suggestions on how to support your child cope with emergencies? There is a really helpful article on the portal. We encourage you to orient yourself to the EAP Portal and see for yourself.
In addition to the wealth of information available on the EAP Portal, we also provide service referrals for Work Life Resources.
