Employee Assistance Program

About

Effective November 1, 2020, UNLV has partnered with ComPsych as our new Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider.

The Employee Assistance Program is a confidential assessment and referral program where employees can get assistance to address personal everyday challenges and obtain resources and information needed to support positive change and improve your well-being.

Your ComPsych Guidance Resources program offers someone to talk to and resources to consult whenever and wherever you need them.

Who Can Use EAP Services?

Services are available to employees and their eligible dependents. Eligible individuals may receive up to three free sessions per year. The following dependents of University of Nevada, Las Vegas employees are eligible for EAP services:

  • Spouse or Domestic partner
  • Minor children (under 18 years of age)
  • Adult children (up to 26 years old) if enrolled as a full-time student
  • Adult children who are permanently disabled
