The Postal Service wants you to remember that counseling and other services are available during the holidays — and all year long — through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
If you need to talk to someone, you can call EAP’s toll-free number at 800-327-4968 (800-EAP-4YOU). The TTY number is 877-492-7341.
Counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
“The holidays are a challenging time for many people. It’s important to take care of yourself. If you need help, the Employee Assistance Program is here for you,” said Deborah Atkins, the EAP administrator.
The EAP site offers other resources, including online counseling and self-help tools.
