COVID-19 Emotional Support Line: 1-844-863-9314
The OMH Emotional Support Line provides free and confidential support, helping callers experiencing increased anxiety due to the coronavirus emergency. The Help Line is staffed by volunteers, including mental health professionals, who have received training in crisis counseling.
EAP coordinators answer messages left on our SUNY Geneseo EAP hotline and return calls within 24 hours, except for weekends and holidays. The EAP coordinator assesses employee challenges and connects the employee with helpful resources in our community. EAP coordinators do not provide counseling but rather provide support for employees in crisis by providing a bridge to professional help and guidance by professionals in our community.
The NYS Employee Assistance Program is a peer assistance program jointly sponsored by labor and management. NYS EAP provides confidential information, assessment, and referral services to NYS employees, their family members, and retirees. It also provides orientations and training for all employees, managers, supervisors, and union representatives on benefits and use of EAP.
