Counselling to ensure your wellbeing

To help you address issues which may be affecting your wellbeing, Flinders University’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential short-term, solutions-focussed counselling, coaching and mentoring service.

EAP is a completely independent counselling service available to University staff members, designed to support you and, where appropriate, explore strategies that can provide help.

Staff may receive up to three sessions paid for by the University and the service is available for either work-related or personal matters. The program works with several designated providers at various locations, including the southern suburbs and some rural areas.

The EAP service is voluntary and staff are able to self-refer themselves by selecting one of the participating providers listed on the EAP web pages, and making an appointment directly with the selected clinic.

Manager Assist program provided by Human Psychology

This program runs in parallel with the Employee Assistance Program and is designed to provide confidential support to managers, providing timely advice in managing personal and interpersonal work issues in staff performance, work relationships and organisational change.

The program does not replace internal People and Culture functions but recognises that these may be limited at times. It also recognises circumstances where specialist expertise is required for short periods.

This program is offered only via Human Psychology, which has a hotline number – 1300 277 924 – that managers can contact for an initial discussion regarding issues or concerns.

Managers receive advice and recommendations on their particular situation from a trained psychologist, and a response is generally provided within 24 hours, unless queries are classified as urgent or critical and are accelerated.
