EAP Resources for Mental Health Awareness Month

Share This:

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Here are some of the resources that are available to all faculty and staff during the month of May, and throughout the year as well.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through MyLifeMatters

CSUF has partnered with MyLifeMatters by Empathia to offer faculty, staff and their households’ individual assistance and support service designed to help them cope with personal challenges that may adversely affect their lives, behavior, and/or performance. Most services are at no cost. For more information, please visit the LifeMatters portal.

The MyLifeMatters Care Center is staffed with professional prepared counselors 24/7, including weekends and holidays. Drop-in calls are attended to immediately.

MyLifeMatters by Empathia also provides assistance, workshops, and trainings for a wide range of topics, including:

– Child Care Providers and Needs

– Elder Care Providers and Programs

– Health and Wellness Resources

– Pet Care Resources

– Work/Life Resources

Monthly Wellness Webinars

Set aside some time for self-care. Attend upcoming wellness webinars this semester to explore the importance of managing stress, avoiding burnout, and improving your mental and emotional well-being. Gain tools and tips, healthy habits, and walk away with a better awareness of how to combat life’s stressors.
