Employee Assistance Program

As a State of California Employee, you and your eligible dependents have access to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This program is provided by the State of California as part of the state’s commitment to promoting employee health and wellbeing. It is offered at no charge to the employee and provides a valuable resource for support and information during difficult times, as well as consultation on day-to-day concerns. EAP is an assessment, short-term counseling, and referral service designed to provide you and your family with assistance in managing everyday concerns.

If you need help, call toll-free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

Magellan Healthcare
Phone: 866-EAP-4SOC (866-327-4762)
TDD callers: 800-327-0801

Customer service representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to confidentially discuss your concerns and ensure that you receive the assistance you need. You may also contact your departmental EAP coordinator, or the statewide EAP benefits manager at (916) 324-9353.


Confidentiality is the hallmark of the program, and is essential to the success of EAP. No one besides the person accessing EAP knows they’ve used the services. No reports are made except aggregate utilization reports that do not identify individuals. The legal exceptions are the same as those that guide all clinicians: if a member expresses intent to commit child or elder abuse; or expresses plausible suicidal or homicidal intent; or a court order.

​Upcoming Events

These workshops are free and are available to all employees, reservations are not required, and seating is on a first-come first-served basis. Before planning to attend, employees should ensure supervisor's approval, and provide two week notice for special accommodations. At many facilities parking is not provided and employees should plan accordingly. For questions or additional information please contact your departmental EAP coordinator. Please check back frequently as new sessions will be added.
