Our Vermont-based Employee and Organizational Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential public, not-for-profit program that provides counseling and wellbeing resources to employees and their household members, and workplace resources to organizations.
Stress, both in and out of the workplace, is a part of life for most employees and business owners, and we’re here to help. Our enhanced EAP includes a comprehensive breadth of services and supports to help with any need, no matter how big or small.
Confidentiality: Our services are confidential and private.
24/7 Access: Life doesn’t adhere to a 9-to-5 schedule, and neither do we. Our clinical line is always available: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even during weekends and holidays.
Professional Counseling: Local, licensed, master's level clinicians are positive, proactive, and ready to support you. Our clinicians can connect with you in-person or via telehealth to develop a solutions-focused plan.
Management Consultation Line: Our exclusive management consultation line connects leaders and managers directly to our suite of supervisor-specific resources and supports.
Wide Range of Services: As a member of Invest EAP, you can access legal referrals and financial advice, monthly wellness workshops, recovery-friendly and substance abuse referral resources, monthly wellbeing digital newsletters, a robust website and wellness portal, and so much more.
