Some problems hit very suddenly, while others
build up so slowly it’s hard to recognize how
seriously they are affecting your life. Feelings of
discomfort are the best clues, especially if they
last a significant length of time. The best solution
is to talk with a counselor about your problem
and your feelings as soon as possible.
EAP also offers information about resources and
special services within the community and how to
use them, including:

EAP Sarasota is a voluntary, confidential counseling
service for all employees and their families. At no
charge, a counselor is available to:
} Offer counseling or make referrals to more
appropriate community agencies
Sometimes a problem can affect you so seriously
it’s hard to concentrate at work. Supervisors are
encouraged to refer employees showing signs of
poor performance (e.g., absenteeism, tardiness or
poor morale). A supervisory referral means your
manager is concerned about you and wants to offer
some help if possible. All referrals are confidential.
