Here at the Canandaigua City School District, our employees are our most important asset. That's why we're so enthusiastic to tell you about the new Employee Assistance Benefit, the Educators’ EAP. This new service will help insure you and your family’s health and well-being, offering the most comprehensive EAP available. Coverage begins July 1, 2018 and you will be automatically enrolled.
This FREE, CONFIDENTIAL program covers you and your family (anyone living in your home) as well as dependents up to age 26. You may contact the EAP to speak with a counselor anytime, counselors answer the phone 24/7 providing “in the moment care”. Should you require or request face-to-face counseling the EAP benefit covers up to six (6) visits per issue, per year.
In addition to the counseling services the EAP addresses today’s complex issues that all employees are confronted with every day. These issues require practical solutions rather than traditional counseling. We recognize that any of us can experience concerns that fall into one of four major categories:
PERSONAL: These can range from stress management to navigating life’s transitions; physical health issues; depression, anxiety, loss and grief issues.
FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS: Includes everything from parenting skills to military separation to adoption assistance to resources for parents of children with special needs.
FINANCIAL & LEGAL: Ranges from retirement or education planning to debt management to immigration issues to creating a will or trust.
WORK & CAREER: Do you need to develop new and advanced skills or learn to be a better member of your work team? Your EAP is prepared to assist you!
