Employee Assistance Program


FGCU’s employee assistance program (EAP) is provided by SalusCare Southwest Florida Employee Assistance Program (SWFEAP). It is an FGCU sponsored service that assists in assisting eligible employees (Faculty, A&P, and SP) in resolving both work-related and personal problems that may be adversely affecting an employee’s performance. Some examples include:

  • stress
  • depression/anxiety
  • conflicts with coworkers
  • marital and/or family/parenting/elder care issues
  • financial issues
  • emotional issues
  • handling work/life balance
  • time management
  • substance/alcohol abuse
  • mental health disorders

This benefit is confidential and there is no cost to eligible employees or their family members. The SWFEAP website has additional resources and links available for both employees and supervisors.
