of the nation’s workforce suffers from mental health or substance abuse each year.

Studies show that nearly 25 percent of our nation’s workforce suffers from mental health or substance abuse issues each year. In a three-month period, adults with depression will each miss an average of 4.8 workdays,  creating a productivity loss estimated as high as $44 billion every year. These numbers don’t even account for employees struggling with family or financial well-being concerns.  Issues like these are what Espyr’s Employee Assistance Program was designed to manage.

Espyr’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefits your people and your bottom-line

Helping your employees achieve their full potential starts with their health and well-being.   Employees suffering from behavioral health issues such as stress, substance abuse, depression, marital and family problems or financial challenges will never achieve their full potential.  Espyr’s Employee Assistance Program can help your employees with all of these problems and more.  In fact, 92% of our client’s employees say that we’ve helped with their issue.  70% said we’ve helped them become more effective on the job.
