The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a diagnostic, consultation, and referral service for employees experiencing personal, relationship or work-related difficulties. The program provides an experienced clinician to help guide you to solutions.
Consultations are strictly confidential consistent with applicable laws pertaining to mental health professionals. No one in the institution will be informed of your contacts with these carefully selected specialists.
All employees and their significant others, including spouses, partners, dependents and children living at home.
The initial sessions and follow-up contacts are provided at no cost. In the event that continued treatment is recommended, mental health and counseling services may be available separate from EAP in your health insurance plans. These recommendations or referrals are subject to your plan’s deductions and co-payments.
For information, consultation, referrals or to schedule an appointment, please email HREAP@mdanderson.org at any time. Available appointment hours are Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. If you need to reschedule an existing appointment, please call or email with sufficient notice.
If you are experiencing a workplace crisis, please utilize the emergency pager at 713-404-3092.
The Employee Assistance Program offers:
- Assessment of personal/work related stresses
- Help with immediate circumstances
- Referrals to treatment or support resources

Although clinical interests are noted, all EAP Specialists are trained to address general mental health issues, (e.g. depression, anxiety, grief, etc.) and are culturally competent to provide the best possible service to our diverse employee population.
