The FirstHealth Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is arranged by FirstHealth of the Carolinas and contracts with external employers to provide valuable benefits to employees and close family members. Contact your human resources department to determine if your employer contracts with FirstHealth EAP.
The EAP is designed to help you and your family with personal problems that may be too large or complex for you to handle alone. Sometimes these problems can interfere with your ability to be successful at work.
The EAP provides confidential assessment, counseling and referral services in a professional setting at no cost to the employee or family members. We believe that having healthy, well-adjusted employees results in improved job performance and productivity. If you are having a personal problem, FirstHealth’s Employee Assistance Program can help.
