Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) helps SUNY Plattsburgh employees to assess problems, and offer information and/or make a referral to a local provider. The program does not provide counseling services.

We Can Offer Help To:

  • Current employees and their families
  • Supervisory personnel
  • Retirees

Who Visits EAP?

All sorts of people! Some of the problems or needs presented by employees include:

  • Emotional or physical
  • Alcohol or other drug
  • Family
  • Need for resources or referrals
  • Simply, just needing another's opinion

Your supervisor may suggest EAP because he or she believes that you may need help to correct a work-related problem.  You are not obligated to follow through on the suggestion. The supervisor is looking for a change in behavior or work habits in the workplace. You are free to pursue other courses, such as self-help books, outside counseling, psychiatric, or medical resources. Our EAP office has a small library consisting of brochures, books and tapes for your use.


We offer:

  • Health-related education workshops (as resources and time permit)
  • Literature via intercampus mail or email 


  • Tuesdays (by appointment)


The service is free of charge and completely confidential, unless we believe that you are in danger of harming yourself and/or others, or there is suspicion of child abuse.

You would be asked to sign a Release of Information form only at your request for information to be sent to your supervisor, Human Resource Services, or other outside contacts.
