The current Employee Assistance Program can best be described as a “hybrid” model in which some services are provided on campus by the EAP coordinator as well as by the CARE Program Coordinator and other services are provided by a third-party vendor, ComPsych.
- The third-party vendor ComPsych arranges counseling services in which the employee or family member is provided six counseling sessions with a counselor in the community. Legal and financial guidance and resources are provided via telephone or online. More information and how to log in to ComPsych, can be found at guidanceresources.com (Company Web ID: CSUEAP) or by calling 1-800-497-9133
- The CARE Program connects and refers employees to community resources that provide health and social services through a comprehensive local resources directory and hands-on guidance. More information about the CARE Program can be found at care.colostate.edu
- CSU also employs an on-site, licensed EAP professional who provides an array of services to the campus community, including crisis assessments, traumatic event response/ debriefing, departmental support, workshops and trainings, and face-to-face, telephone and email consultation.
Jan Pierce is the interim counselor leading the on-site EAP services. She has 10 years’ experience providing counseling in the community. She has worked as a crisis counselor for UCHealth in the emergency department, as a mental health clinician at Connections and SummitStone and held a private practice in Fort Collins for 7 years.
In short, Jan has a great working knowledge of counseling services in the area.
