Student/Employee Assistance Program (Personal Counseling) EAP

Students of the MGH Institute who may be experiencing difficulties that affect their personal lives or program performance are encouraged to use the MGB Student/Employee Assistance Program (SAP/EAP) for consultations, short-term counseling, information, and referral.

Counselors are on campus two half-days each week to offer IHP students assessment, referral, and short-term counseling (up to six visits). The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is housed in the IHP Student and Alumni Center, Building 39. As always, students and household members can be seen in any of MGB SAP/EAP’s nine offices, or speak with a counselor over the phone. For more information on how the SAP can help, or to schedule an appointment, call (866) 724-4327.

The SAP/EAP offers assistance with all types of personal, family or work-related concerns.

The SAP/EAP provides free, confidential, and voluntary assessments, short-term problem-focused counseling, and referrals for treatment or other assistance, including a monthly support group for those involved with elder care.

The main SAP/EAP office is at 175 Charles River Park at MGH, but they also have offices at different MGB locations in the Greater Boston area, the North Shore, and on Cape Cod.

Call (866) 724-4327 to speak to a counselor. They are there to help.
