Employee Assistance Program

Stress, anxiety, and feelings of anger and grief may be experienced when notified of a layoff.  For some, these feelings may be difficult to process or handle and many can benefit from talking through problems and concerns with someone who is objective and experienced: a trained behavioral health professional who will listen in confidence and assist in these difficult moments.  UMB’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers free confidential counseling and referrals to staff and their family members who are experiencing such difficulty.  To take advantage of UMB’s EAP counseling services, call 855-410-7628 to schedule an appointment with a counselor.
