Behavioral Health Partners Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is sponsored by BJC HealthCare to provide EAP services to employees and their dependents. Confidential help is available to assist with any personal concern that may disrupt work and home life. Help with stress, family/marital relationships, financial and legal problems, and other personal challenges are available at no cost to you.

Flexible appointment times (day and evening) are available at numerous office locations throughout the metropolitan area.
