The confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through The Standard via Morneau Shepell can help you with things like stress, anxiety, depression, chemical dependency, relationship issues, legal issues, parenting questions, financial counseling, and dependent care resources. Best of all, it's free! Help is available 24/7, 365 days a year by telephone at 888.293.6948. Other resources are available online at workhealthlife.com/Standard3 . In-person counseling may also be available, depending on the type of help you need.
