Assessment and Referral
Helping you assess your personal concerns and come up with a plan of action, including giving you referrals if you need them.
The initial assessment is conducted by a fully licensed, master's level counselor during one or more meetings. As with all MSU EAP services, this service is entirely free of charge, and does not impact your insurance benefit. During these initial conversations, your counselor will gather appropriate demographic, social, psychological, medical, and work history from you. Based on these meetings, the MSU EAP counselor will recommend short term counseling at the MSU EAP, referral to other providers for additional evaluation, or connect you with ongoing counseling.
Some concerns will require a referral to a community provider who accepts your insurance. The MSU EAP staff is familiar with a wide network of local services, resources, and providers, and will work with you to find what you need. The decision to accept the recommendations of the MSU EAP counselor remains with you.
