EAP would like to acknowledge that we are meeting on the Indigenous lands of Turtle Island, the ancestral name for what now is called North America. Moreover, EAP would like to acknowledge the Alabama-Coushatta, Caddo, Carrizo/Comecrudo, Coahuiltecan, Comanche, Kickapoo, Lipan Apache, Tonkawa and Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo, and all the American Indian and Indigenous Peoples and communities who have been or have become a part of these lands and territories in Texas.

The culmination of the year-long election cycle has been exhausting. The recent rampage and loss of life in our nation’s capital shocked and grieved us. HealthPoint EAP continues to monitor and respond to the varied needs of our community. We offer these resources, which may be a support to help navigate the spectrum of feelings you are encountering.
As a gentle reminder, because we are all unique, the coping strategies that soothe or support a friend or a colleague may or may not be what you need. We offer a variety of approaches for you to try. Notice what options strengthen or expand practices already in your tool belt and reach out via email or phone to schedule an appointment if you need more. Go to the Counseling Services Page for more information about how to connect with one of our counselors for individual support.
