Back in the EAP offices!

As of April 11, 2016, the EAP will be back in the offices at 419 West Redwood Street. We want to thank the Health and Human Services library staff for all they did to accommodate us during this past month. We also appreciate the other employees on campus for understanding and assisting us when necessary.

Most of all, thank you to our clients for being so flexible.  We are glad to be back where we belong and look forward to getting back to our usual routines.  Please call to make an appointment or email us at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu.

 

EAP temporary offices

Due to the fire in 419 West Redwood a couple of weeks ago, the EAP has been temporarily relocated to the Health and Human Services Library at the corner of Greene and Lombard Streets.  Please call our main EAP phone at 667.214.1555 to schedule an appointment. You can also email us at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu.

Thank you for your understanding.

We Want to Meet You!

The EAP will have a table in the main hallway of the hospital outside of the Breast Care Center on Thursday, March 17 at lunchtime and at dinner time.  We will have important information to share with you as well as some free gifts.  In addition, you can enter a raffle to win a free gift basket! Stop by and say hello to us on Thursday.

The EAP has moved (temporarily)!

Due to circumstances beyond our control (a fire in our building at 419 West Redwood Street), the EAP will be temporarily operating in the Health Services Library at 601 West Lombard Street on the 2nd floor.  We do have access to emails, but we do not have access to our phones.  We have an EAP after-hours phone that we invite you to call us on at any time: 410.241.1488.

If you already have an appointment scheduled with us, your counselor will be calling you from her cell phone to confirm your appointment.  If you have any questions, please call the number listed above, or email Maureen McCarren at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu

 

Professional Building Closed Today

The professional building was closed today.  Maintenance is working on fixing the problem.  Friday’s appointments were all canceled.  We apologize if your counselor was not able to notify you.  The counselors are unable to access their computers/calendars/contact information for clients.  We hope this is all rectified soon.  Next week, the EAP may be located in another building on campus.  Please stay tuned for updates.

Meet and Greet the EAP

The EAP will have a table in the hospital every couple of weeks so employees can get to know us better.  You may have noticed us on March 1 in the hallway near the Breast Cancer Center.  We had some free give aways, brochures and a raffle for a gift basket.  Best of all, employees were able to meet a counselor and ask questions about the EAP.  The next time we will be in the hospital is March 17th.  Look for us at both lunch time and dinner time.  See you then!!
