Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Allegheny College offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Employee Connect, through our Lincoln Financial Life/LTD carrier as a resource to help you balance work, life and family issues.  As an Allegheny employee, you have access to telephone counseling, as well as up to four face-to-face visits with a counselor.  Counselors are available 24/7 with confidential support, guidance and resources. 

The site is easy to navigate and offers a variety of timely work/life topics such as:

  1. Emotional Wellbeing (self-help tools and information are available to address concerns, such as alcohol and substance abuse, anxiety, depression, anger management, or grief and bereavement issues)
  2. Family Life (resources are available to address issues concerning your family, such as pregnancy, childcare, adoption, parenting, elder care, learning disorders, or child and adolescent development)
  3. Healthy Living (information to help you maintain or improve your physical and mental condition, such as nutrition, exercise, specific medical conditions, weight loss, or stress reduction)
  4. Legal/Financial Resources (articles and information to help address a wide range of financial and legal questions, such as managing debt, family law, identity theft, real estate, will and estate planning, or financial calculators to assist you with buying a home or auto)
