The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) offers an EAP as a free benefit to state employees. The EAP provides confidential counseling and referral services for employees or family members. The EAP offers counseling on personal problems that may adversely affect an individual’s family life, relationships, self-esteem, or job.
If the help of community resources is needed, the EAP counselor will provide a referral to the most appropriate resource. When a referral is made, those expenses become the employee's responsibility. For further information, contact DHHS at 402-471-2306. To arrange for a private and confidential appointment, call Best Care EAP at 402-354-8000 or 800-666-8606. If there is no answer, call 402-354-2710.
