The University of Queensland provides up to six sessions of free, confidential counselling, coaching and support for employees and their family members through the Employee Assist Program (EAP). The University’s current EAP provider is Davidson Trahaire Corpsych, through employeeAssist.

employeeAssist provides confidential counselling, coaching and support for employees and their family members for a broad range of work and life issues. These include issues around relationships, family, conflict, drug and alcohol, stress, communication, grief and loss, self-esteem and confidence.

Staff and their immediate family members are entitled to six sessions per year (per person). employeeAssist is a structured, short term, solution-focused approach to assist individuals to enhance their emotional, physical and financial wellbeing. Individuals who have an issue that requires long term support, will be referred to a suitable professional outside of the EAP who can provide longer term care.

Resources and related information can be found through the employeeAssist website.

The University also provides a Manager Assist program through the provider Davidson Trahaire Corpsych. This program is designed to provide supervisors and managers with support, resources and techniques that can assist them in dealing with people issues that present on a regular basis.
