How Does It Work?

ComPsych's GuidanceResources is a University-sponsored program that provides confidential services at no cost to you and your dependents. You will have access to the following resources:

  • Confidential Counseling. Someone to talk to.
    You and your family can receive confidential consultations with highly trained master's and doctoral level clinicians 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The EAP offers up to 3 in-person counseling sessions per issue at no cost to you. If additional resources are needed to address the issue, the additional care may be covered under your medical plan. Concerns include: stress, anxiety and depression; job pressures; relationship/marital conflicts; grief and loss; problems with children; substance abuse
  • Financial Information and Resources. Discuss your best options.
    Do you have questions about retirement, saving for college or how to get out of credit card debt? You and your family can speak with Certified Public Accountants and Certified Financial Planners for answers to your financial questions.
  • Legal Support and Resources. Expert info when you need it.
    Speak directly with an attorney if you need information about legal matters such as divorce and family law, debt and bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, civil and criminal actions, contracts and real estate transactions.
