Welcome to Arlington EAP!

EAP Overview


Arlington Public Schools (APS) and Arlington County Government (ACG) support a joint Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to provide free, confidential, professional assistance to employees and their families to help resolve personal, family, or work-related concerns that may impact emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being and potentially affect, the employees’ job performance.  Staff assist with onsite crisis/grief responses, offer supervisor/management consultation, and conduct employee and supervisory training.

EAP staff is committed to helping both APS and ACG attract and retain high quality professionals.  We recognize that retention is impacted by work climate and available supportive services to help manage life events.

The EAP is a comprehensive resource to help address a wide variety of personal and professional challenges.  There are times when employees experience health conditions that may impact their ability to safely perform all of their job responsibilities.

We partner with HR and management to determine the best way to support both the employee and the organization in these situations.

The EAP collaborates with APS wellness ambassadors and HealthSmart staff to promote well-being as well as support school and county wellness initiatives.

We manage the DOT testing program consistent with federal and state guidelines.  Arlington Public School staff also utilize the EAP to administer key programs related to safety and employee well-being (e.g. OSHA compliance) as well as to assist Human Resources with behavioral medical accommodation requests and attendance verification.

The EAP is staffed by licensed behavioral health professionals who have a combined total of over sixty years of EAP experience as well as specialized behavioral health training.

As an internal EAP, staff have the advantage of understanding organizational structure and internal resources that may assist with resolving workplace concerns.
