What is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?

The University’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential, professional service for employees, their household members dependents, and organizational work units. The EAP provides a variety of services to help employees influenced by a range of personal or professional stressors.

Optum EAP offers three (3) free counseling sessions per presenting issue, offered in-person or virtually. Employees and their covered dependents, who are enrolled in a University of Missouri medical plan may continue counseling services, with a copay, beyond the three free EAP sessions via behavioral health benefits.
