 Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Bridging the Gap Between Problems and Solutions 





 Program Overview 

 Stockton University understands that our employees might be confronted with certain challenges in their personal and professional lives.  Challenges can range from issues revolving around child or elder care to more significant issues involving substance abuse, marital/relationship conflicts, domestic violence, workplace stress and mental health issues.  If left unaddressed, these personal concerns can have a profound effect on work performance and quality of life.

 NJ 2-1-1 can help you find solutions to personal needs by informing you of resources in your community like day care facilities, shelters, affordable housing units, social services, employment training programs, senior services, medical insurance, and more. Learn about our resource database, call center and website.
