Human resources generalists, as well as employee assistance program (EAP) counselors, managers, and directors, can keep abreast of the issues related to EAPs by joining a chapter of the EAPA. These groups also provide guidance to employers that have not yet set up EAPs in their own companies.
Currently, there is one chapter of the EAPA in Connecticut. Contact information for the Connecticut chapter is available on the EAPA website at http://www.eapa.info/chaptbranch/chaplocate.htm
. This website also provides information about the Western New England chapter, based in Massachusetts, which serves the northern Connecticut area. Meanwhile, Connecticut employers may obtain information about setting up or belonging to a regional group by contacting:
