Looking after yourself, your colleagues and your family

As COVID-19 restrictions come back into force, you may experience anxiety or stress.

We care about your mental health and wellbeing and are committed to supporting you throughout this uncertain time with a wide range of resources found on the Health and Wellbeing page on the Monash Health COVID-19 website.

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.
