GW's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available at no cost to you and all members of your household (including dependent children up to age 26, whether or not they live at home). The service can assist you with a range of needs - from finding daycares in your area to confidential counseling (up to 5 sessions).  

Services are confidential and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To improve the ease and access for managers to locate important resources available to them through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), a new Leaders Center has been created. Managers can use the same GW login (Username: GW-Wellbeing; Password: Yourlife) as the resourcesforliving.com website. This center is a centralized place for managers to get access to information on services, find support for their teams, access promotional materials and more. Some of the features include:

  • A navigation menu customized to managers
  • Quick access to management services and tools on the homepage
  • The quarterly Leader’s guide with featured podcast, articles, videos, and recommended trainings
  • Promotional materials – access to our promotional calendar, monthly webinar calendar and crisis support PDF flyers. (Note: This section will continue to grow over the next few months.)
