Resources for Vassar Employees

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), through E4Health, provides confidential access to free, short-term counseling through local therapists, as well as referral for other work/life needs. The EAP is available 24-hours a day/7 days a week for crisis intervention, and during regular business hours for counseling appointments, and can be reached at 800-828-6025.

In addition to counseling, the EAP provides referral and case-management for other personal or family needs, such as legal questions, child care, elder care, and debt counseling. E4Health offers an interactive, informational website on a wide range of topics: helloE4.com (username: vassar, password: guest).
