Employee Assistance

The Diocese of Lansing Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is provided through our Catholic Charities agencies .  The EAP is designed to provide brief short-term counseling by well formed, licensed, professional, master’s level or above therapists.  All employees of Diocese of Lansing parishes, schools, Central Services, and Catholic Charities agencies are eligible to participate.  Employees are eligible to receive up to six (6) free counseling sessions.  Typically, the first visit is an intake and assessment to identify the presenting problem.  Successive sessions focus on creating and implementing a treatment plan with specific steps and objective goals.

EAP counselors can assist employees with a wide range of personal issues.  Services are offered through both individual and/or confidential group settings. Here is a non-exhaustive list of some of the most common issues:

  • Family issues
  • Parenting issues
  • Marital issues
  • Emotional concerns – stress, anxiety, depression
  • Substance abuse – alcohol and other drugs
  • Grief / loss
  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual abuse

EAP services are confidential and all staff adheres to all federal and state guidelines regarding confidentiality. 

Employees can access counseling services by contacting one of the local Catholic Charities agencies during regular business hours. 

If you are experiencing a crisis that requires immediate attention, please call 911 for help.
