Employee Assistance Program

UNLV provides employees with easy and confidential access to the employee assistance program (EAP). EAP is a confidential assessment and referral program where employees can get assistance in dealing with everyday issues like stress, finances, relationships, parenting, finding child or elder care, and much more. Employees can also get confidential help with personal or work-related difficulties, including depression, addiction, and grief.

EAP services are provided through Ceridian Lifeworks. Consultants are available 24 hours a day, every day, all year long. Employees can watch educational videos, read articles, e-mail consultants, and find online resources at Ceridian’s website. (User ID: NSHE, Password: EAP)
