Hawaii Counseling Services/ EAPs: What you need to know

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.

All state government employees (except student hires) of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches on all islands are eligible for Resource for Employee Assistance and Counseling Help (REACH) services. Exceptions are employees of the Department of Transportation and Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, which have their own separate EAPs.
The REACH Program provides confidential, short-term professional counseling services to employees who may be experiencing personal problems that are affecting job performance. WorkLife Hawaii is contracted to provide REACH services through a voluntary program that permits employees to seek help on their own. The services are free, up to a maximum of three sessions. WorkLife Hawaii can be reached at 808-543-8445 or 800-994-3571 or online at http://www.worklifehawaii.org.
