Employee Assistance Program: The University understands how challenging it can be to balance your work and personal life and we are committed to helping you do just that! That's why the University contracts with an outside vendor – Optum, to provide an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Optum offers solutions for living well at home and at work. Optum counselors provide confidential support for a variety of concerns, from coping with stress to information and support on financial issues, child care, legal issues, relationships, and other life challenges. Their goal is to help you live a happier, more fulfilling life – today and every day.

These services are available to you and your household members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, free of charge, and are completely confidential. Reach Optum professionals by telephone at 1-800-622-7276, or visit the website at (access code: Tulane).
