Crisis and Grief
Sometimes life hands us a rough patch -- a difficult situation involving emotional upheaval, personal or family crisis, illness or a health scare, an accident, or perhaps the death of a loved one or friend. It's important to remember you don't have to face these challenges alone. Mason has information and resources to assist you.
Find out more by calling our office at 703.993.2600 and asking to speak with a member of the Employee Relations Team or by sending an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Benefitted employees have the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as part of their benefits package. Your EAP can assist you on a range of life topics including stress, parenting and marital issues, financial or legal challenges, career planning, depression, anxiety, or grief and loss. They are available 24 hours a day to help you find the resources you need. With any situation, the first four visits are covered and are at no cost to you.
You can read more on the Employee Assistance Program page.
