Employee Assistance Program
The University of Denver provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through SupportLinc to all benefited employees at no cost. The EAP is a 100% confidential health benefit, separate from medical insurance, to help you manage a broad range of life's daily challenges, including anxiety, depression, marriage/relationship problems, grief/loss, substance abuse, anger management, work-related pressure, and stress.
SupportLinc offers bilingual support and makes referrals for professional counseling, legal assistance, and financial assistance, as well as support for everyday family issues such as dependent care, car repair, pet care, and home improvement. Receive up to six referred visits per issue per year!
For an array of further wellbeing articles and techniques for self-care, you may visit SupportLinc's Wellbeing Place blog.

Mental Health Toolkit
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Click the button below for SupportLinc's mental health toolkit.
Faculty and Staff Support Network
The Faculty and Staff Support Network (FSSN) ensures that co-workers and colleagues have a way to reach out and engage support for someone they believe may need it. While many resources and systems, such as the Employee Assistance Program, are already in place to aid members of the DU community, the new FSSN addresses an important gap — how to intervene on behalf of someone who is struggling. If you notice that a co-worker or colleague is behaving in a way that causes you concern or creates a harmful or unsafe work environment, the FSSN allows you to intervene discretely, without fear of repercussions. You can also self-refer through the FSSN for advice about what assistance you may need, or where within DU is the right place to turn.
