Problems are a part of life
we all face problems from time to time that we usually handle ourselves, yet sometimes it makes sense to ask for help. UNMC and Nebraska Medicine provide a confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for you and your family members that provide resources and solutions for life's problems.
Because UNMC and Nebraska Medicine are concerned with your well-being, and are aware that personal problems can influence job performance, services are available through Arbor Family Counseling.
Arbor Family Counseling, which provides counseling assistance to UNMC employees through the Employee Assistance Program, has created a video with on how to deal with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and embrace “the new normal” through connection, commitment and community. The video includes tips on stress relief, focusing on the positive, dealing with anxiety and sadness and other helpful suggestions.
