Employee Assistance Program

The University of Tasmania has partnered with Converge International to provide you with an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to help you deal with the challenges, concerns or issues that may be affecting you at work or at home.

Converge International offers a confidential, personal coaching and counselling service that provides support for a variety of short-term, personal or work issues. This service gives you access to qualified professionals including psychologists, social workers and management coaches.

The Employee Assistance Program is a confidential service provided by the University to assist those who have work or non-work-related mental health concerns or issues. Employee assistance is a 24 hour, 7 days per week service.

Who can access the EAP?

  • University employees,
  • University employee immediate family members,
  • Adjunct, Clinical and Associate Title Holders,
  • Visiting Scholars, visiting fellows and honorary title holders.

Employees and Adjunct and Clinical Title Holders will be required to provide proof of employment to the Service Provider at the time of scheduling a consultation, this is confirmed via an email confirmation process.

At least 24 hours notice of inability to attend a scheduled counselling session must be provided. If an employee fails to provide 24 hours notice they will personally incur an account for that session.
