Good News: Starting June 1, 2020, through a partnership with Optum, we are offering enhanced Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services.

Available 24/7 to all employees and household members, this program is being offered as UC Santa Cruz is committed to providing our employees with the support they need to help make informed decisions about life and work issues.

Through EAP, employees can easily connect with benefits, which include:

  • Up to 6 sessions to see a face-to-face counselor
  • Unlimited telephonic access to a master's level Specialist
  • Unlimited access to online information, articles and other tools through Liveandworkwell.com
  • These EAP services are provided to you at no-cost and 100% confidential in accordance with the law.
Look for an email coming soon that will list more details on available EAP benefits and services.
