Confidential Mental Health Services Available to Employees and Families

UW–Madison employees and their families are encouraged to take care of their mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are experiencing concerns about illness, finances, loved ones, and more. The current situation also requires adjusting to new realities, while physical distancing can make many feel isolated. The Employee Assistance Office (EAO) offers free, confidential counseling on personal or professional concerns to UW–Madison employees, significant others, and family members Monday through Friday during business hours. At this time, appointments for phone or video chats are available the same week they are requested. For 24/7 access to counselors, contact EAO partner LifeMatters. Visit for details.
