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. This association also provides guidance to employers that have not yet set up EAPs in their own companies.
Although Montana has not yet established a chapter, the Inland Northwest chapter in Washington serves Western Montana. Contact information for the chapter’s offices is available at http://www.eapa.info
. Meanwhile, Montana employers may obtain information about setting up or belonging to a regional group by contacting:
