Stressed? Contact the Employee Assistance Program

It's okay to admit you're feeling a bit stressed at this point in your new career at Mayo. You are not alone. You are still trying to learn your role as well as your way around campus, you are working with a variety of people who might have different work styles or think differently than you do, and as a result, you may be feeling overwhelmed.

Another way to relieve your stress is to talk to one of the professional counselors at the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This program offers no-cost counseling services for employees to help them manage life issues and concerns. Counselors are located throughout the Rochester campus and provide professional counseling services for a variety of issues.

All EAP services are confidential and strive to help employees establish a better sense of work-life balance. In addition, there are ongoing groups, educational presentations, and management consultation services available. To learn more about what EAP has to offer, visit the EAP site on the intranet.

Well-Being Index: The Well-Being Index is a validated screening tool to evaluate fatigue, depression, burnout, anxiety/stress, and mental/physical quality of life.
