Employee Assistance Program
CWC does not provide personal counseling to faculty & staff of Augsburg. However, all benefits-eligible employees may use the Augsburg Employee Assistance Program (ComPsych Guidance Resources) at no charge. Compsych provides confidential phone counseling 24/7 to help address personal issues, stressors, and grief. Compsych will refer you to a local counselor for individual and family counseling (for several free face-to-face counseling sessions), or to other resources in your community. They also provide legal information and a referral for a free 30 minute legal consultation, financial counseling, and information and referral for new parents, for caregivers for the elderly, and for other work-life needs. To use services, you will need an Augsburg Web ID which is available through Human Resources and on the HR Moodle site. Call Compsych at 877-595-5284 (24/7).
See the Human Resources Community Moodle site for the most updated information or contact HR.
