GET SUPPORT FOR DIFFICULT TIMES
With the holidays over and other stresses in our lives today it is easy to understand how we may become strained and overcome with anxiety. Often when feeling this way it is difficult to know who to turn to for assistance. A little known benefit we have as educational employees in Los Angeles County is the Employee Assistance Service for Education program. EASE is a leading regional service that provides district staff and their families with the opportunity to assess and resolve their difficulties with the assistance of a professional counselor through an assessment and brief counseling service. EASE offers high quality, confidential assistance in:
- Personal and family problems
- Job-related issues
- Substance abuse
- Grief, loss and traumatic incidents
- Worksite and phone consultations
All calls and consultations with EASE are confidential and will not be reported to the district, your school, or the Association. There is no reason to suffer in silence. If you feel you need assistance please take advantage of this very important benefit by calling (800) 882-1341. A confidential counselor will be available to take your call.
