As we begin to wind down for the festive season, we know for some it can be a difficult time particularly after the personal and professional challenges each of us have faced this year.
We care about your mental health and wellbeing and are committed to supporting you throughout the holidays with a wide range of resources. If you notice that someone is not doing well, it’s important to check in and remind them of the services we have available.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a professional counselling service that offers confidential, short-term support for a variety of work-related and personal problems that may be affecting you at work or at home. This service is available to employees, immediate family members and volunteers for counselling and coaching support. There are eight programs providing assistance and support.
Call 1300 687 327 or visit the EAP Portal. The login for the EAP Portal is monashhealth using both the username and password.
