Supporting your most valuable asset

At Fairview Health Services, we recognize your staff is your most valuable asset. We also appreciate the importance of supporting your people through the various changes that occur in their lives. 

Fairview’s Enhanced Employee Assistance Program (EEAP) is a short-term counseling, information and referral service for employees and their families. It is designed to assist individuals during challenging times when outside support can make a huge difference.

Our EEAP counselors are Fairview employees who are dedicated to providing clinically proven employee assistance services. Working with employees and organizations is their area of professional expertise – exclusively. Their EEAP clinical experience produces the very best health outcomes for both individuals and employers.

It is important to note that many other EEAP services sub-contract through networks of mental health generalists who may not have the same level of EEAP-specific experience. 


The Fairview Difference

Higher Quality Care

Fairview’s EEAP counselors are licensed professionals, with graduate level training in a variety of mental health disciplines and expertise in issues specific to the workplace.

Better Patient Experience

Our counselors provide short-term, problem-focused counseling, in person, at our counseling centers. This is an EEAP best practice as it helps build trust, facilitate open conversations and expedite healing.

Lower Healthcare Costs

Fairview’s EEAP is a cost containment strategy with the potential to improve the overall health and productivity of your employee population.
