Employee Assistance Program
The Tufts Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers confidential counseling and referrals to assist you and your adult household members with a number of personal and professional issues, work and family life, health and wellness, and other work/life issues.
The EAP is confidential and voluntary. No one will know that you have used the program unless you choose to tell them, and nothing will be included in your medical record or personnel file.
The EAP services include:
- Legal and financial services
- Dependent care resources
- Online resources
Access to all EAP services is available:
The EAP counselors are licensed professionals experienced at helping with a wide range of personal and work-related issues. During your first conversation, the counselor will gather information, evaluate your needs, and suggest a plan of action.
Depending on your unique situation, an EAP counselor will arrange in-person, phone, or video counseling so you can discuss your concerns in depth. If in-person counseling is agreed upon, the meeting will take place in a convenient, private office.
Appointments are available day and evening at convenient locations throughout the United States and Canada.
Counselors are available 24/7 and can help with all types of personal and professional issues, including:
- Career concerns

The EAP offers consultations and referrals for a variety of legal matters and includes a free 30-minute confidential telephone consultation per legal matter. Note: This service excludes job-related legal issues.
