Employee Benefits

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The University of Wyoming offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides benefited employees and their household members with professional counseling, as well as legal and financial assistance.

UW partners with MINES and Associates of Littleton, Colorado, to provide services at no cost to UW employees.

Participation in the EAP is voluntary and strictly confidential. Employees can choose to meet face to face or access professional assistance online or by telephone, 24/7. MINES provides a network of doctoral-level licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, certified alcohol counselors, master's level therapists and certified employee assistance professionals.

Assistance is offered in the following areas:

  • Counseling -- The MINES professionals offer up to six free counseling sessions per year to help employees and household members deal with issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, stress, anxiety, financial problems, legal referrals, work-related issues and other problems.
  • Financial -- Each employee and household member can receive a 30-minute office or telephone financial consultation on topics including credit counseling, debt and budgeting assistance, tax planning, retirement and college planning services and other services. USERNAME: uofwy, PASSWORD: employee
