Know when - and how - to help

Recognize when you or a coworker may need support

For most of us, stress comes with the job. Sometimes pressure can be motivating. However, stress can escalate into something serious. How do you know when you or a coworker might need help?

You may notice a decrease in productivity, or comments about feeling overwhelmed. You may see physical changes that occur when stress depletes energy for self-care. If so, remember that your Employee Assistance Program can help.


Professionals are available around-the-clock by phone to help manage any issue that’s causing stress.

Resources and referrals

If you or a coworker might feel overwhelmed, let our consultants take some of the pressure off by providing resources and referrals for a range of daily living and convenience matters.

Webinar: Mental Health First Aid

Being equipped to be able to respond to peers and support co-workers in a manner that is helpful is an important emotional health skill. An employee may hear news of a recent bereavement of a family member, and look to their teammates for support in the workplace.

The goal of this training is to develop and train employees to provide emotional support to co-workers who are facing individual emotional concerns.

You can access this seminar anytime starting February 19th. No registration is necessary – just log into the EAP website using the username “USC” and password “guest”. Once you are logged in, scroll down and you will see “Online Seminars” in the middle of the page.
