What Is the EAP?
The Employee Assistance Program is known for helping with depression and substance problems, but did you know that the EAP offers so much more? EAP services cover a variety of issues with confidential support and resources to balance your life, navigate challenges, and enhance your wellbeing. Wherever you are in life, the EAP is here for you.
This coverage is free to you.
It Doesn't Need to be a Crisis to Call. The majority of individuals who contact the EAP are facing everyday life challenges. If you or a family member would like someone to talk with during a time of need, call the BNSF EAP+ Work/Life Program at 800-383-2327.
What Types of Services Are Offered?
All employees can access no-cost counseling sessions (up to five sessions per situation or concern) through either local providers or through the convenience of virtual video or telephonic sessions.
Note that this is not five sessions per year; you could have five sessions for one situation, then five more for another concern.
Areas where the EAP can offer support:
A Work/Life Specialist will assist you with locating caregivers, legal/financial assistance, and a full range of other resources to help you juggle work/life demands.
In addition, your no-cost resources include:
Assessment and referral to counseling resources
In-person, telephone-based text or videoconferencing sessions with a licensed counselor
Telephone-based legal consultation
Childcare and eldercare location services
Extensive database of resources, tools and webinars designed to help support you to be successful at work and at home.
