To learn more about the scheduling process

1. Reach out to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The EAP can be reached via email at or via phone at 517-355-4506.  Please just contact us and let us know you would like to schedule an appointment with someone for short-term counseling.  If you call, we kindly ask that you leave a voicemail message with your name and phone number or email.   Due to the large volume of calls and emails we are receiving seeking services our response may be a bit delayed but our Administrative Assistant, Nicole Martin, will get back with you as quickly as possible.

2. Paperwork

Once you have made initial contact with us, we will send you the required paperwork.  It is our consent for treatment where you will consent to treatment by an EAP counselor, provide us with additional information about yourself, and will also receive additional information about the EAP and our services.  It is a form fill PDF and is generally very user friendly.  In the event that an individual has difficulty with our paperwork we do ask that you let us know so that we can work with you to find an alternative arrangement.  Once you've had a chance to complete the paperwork, please return it to us at, fax it to us at 517-432-0155, or contact us to make arrangements to drop it off to us in Room 110 of Linton Hall.

3. Schedule An Appointment

Once paperwork has been returned, Nicole will reach out to you via email (unless you specify otherwise) to find a time for you to begin short-term counseling with our of our EAP providers.  All appointments are 50 minutes long and are available via HIPAA compliant Zoom or in-person (Linton Hall).
