Employee Assistance Program


Effective January 1, 2014, UMBC Regular and Contingent II employees and members of their households have access to the Inova Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services.

Inova EAP is a nationally recognized company and has been in the business of helping employees manage workplace and family issues for more than 26 years.   They recognize that personal and family concerns can make life very difficult, and sometimes affect your ability to concentrate on the job.  At such times, having someone who listens and is objective and concerned may be just the help you need to avoid a crisis.  Inova EAP provides that support.  Their Counselors are trained, licensed professionals who can advise you on a wide range of problems – emotional illness, work life issues, relationship or family difficulties, alcohol or other drug abuse, legal or financial difficulties, and other major life or health changes.  Inova EAP services are also private and confidential.  When you speak to an Inova Counselor, you have security in knowing that information shared will be held in the strictest confidence.  You have the option of a self-referral, or the University may make a supervisory referral on your behalf.

We encourage you to visit the dedicated Inova/UMBC website to learn of all the available services and resources.  View the Inova Brochure to see highlights of the program.
