The EAP (Employee Assistance Program) is a benefit provided by the South Country Central School District through Eastern Suffolk BOCES. EAP is a service to help ALL employees, retired employees and their families who are facing difficult problems. The BOCES EAP is staffed by licensed mental health professionals who provide assessments, referrals, brief counseling services and numerous workshops for professional development. The staff is committed to protecting the confidentiality of every individual who uses the services. There is no cost to you or your family members when using the services. The EAP staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information, visit the Eastern Suffolk BOCES EAP website to watch a brief overview of the program.
