EAP Services for State Employees and their Families

Natural disasters such as the August 24th earthquake in Napa, can upset our sense of stability and make life seem unpredictable and unfamiliar. You may feel stressed or overwhelmed with the damage to your home and your community. You may be concerned about your co-workers, family and friends.  Remember that your EAP is here to help - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  As a state employee, your EAP provider, MHN, has an Immediate Crisis Support Center available for you, and care managers are ready to take your call.  The toll-free number is (866) EAP-4SOC.
