Counseling Services

Counseling Services are offered both through Washington University in St. Louis and Barnes-Jewish Hospital:

Washington University Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Barnes-Jewish Hospital Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

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. A licensed professional counselor will provide an assessment of the problem and recommend a plan of action that may result in short-term counseling within the EAP and/or a referral to resources within your benefit plan or the community.

Call 314-729-4030 or out of area at 888-505-6444 for EAP service information, to make an appointment or to speak with a professional to talk over your concern.
