Successful business owners recognize that everyday life stresses can cause severe damage to on-the-job performance. Studies show that employees trying to cope with distressing personal issues are more likely to be involved in accidents, make imprudent decisions or abuse sick leave.
More than 36,000 employees and their family members living in the Gulf Coast region are covered by the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offered by BayView Professional Associates based in Mobile, Ala. An EAP is a counseling service for employees and their eligible dependents who may be experiencing personal or workplace problems.
Employers contract with BayView EAP because they make their employees’ well-being a priority. They want to give their employees and their families an opportunity to receive confidential and supportive, solution-focused counseling. Our goal is to help our patients find relief from unresolved life problems and to achieve peace of mind.
EAP services to employees and family members include mental health screening, assessment, brief solution-focused counseling, crisis intervention, and critical incident stress debriefing. As a service to employers, BayView provides mental health seminars, educational workshops and orientation sessions for employees and supervisors of the companies that contract with them for EAP services.
For employers wanting to receive more information or to discuss your company’s EAP, please call (251) 660-2360 or (888) 335-3044. For employees whose employer contracts with BayView EAP, you may call (251) 660-2360 or (888) 335-3044 to make an initial appointment.
Individuals that carry commercial insurance but whose employer does not provide an EAP may receive confidential, therapeutic services at BayView Professional Associates.
