The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a free, confidential service available to campus academic appointees and staff, including School of Medicine staff and academic appointees with offices at the UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange, as well as their dependents.

The EAP program is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is administered by the Guidance Resources®, an EAP provider since 1978, with oversight from UC Irvine Human Resources.

Services include:

  • Counseling — Speak with highly trained master’s and doctoral level clinicians who will listen to your concerns and refer you for in-person one-on-one counseling.
  • Financial information and resources — Consult by phone with certified public accountants and certified financial planners.
  • Legal support and resources — Consult by phone consultation with an attorney, who will refer you to a qualified attorney in your area for a free 30-minute session and 25 percent reduction in legal fees.
  • Work-life solutions — Consult by phone with a work-life specialist who will recommend qualified referrals to meet your needs in child and elder care, moving and relocation, making major purchases, college planning, pet care and home repair.
  • Online information — Get expert information on a variety of services through tutorials and streaming videos on a number of topics, including wellness, smoking cessation, weight loss, grief and parenting.

There are two ways to access your Guidance Resources benefits:

  • Call 844-824-3273. You will speak to a master’s or doctoral level professional who will guide you to the appropriate services you want.
  • Visit Guidance Resources online at www.guidanceresources.com and enter UC Irvine’s ID: UCIEAP3

Services are available in person, over the phone and online. All services provided under EAP are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via the toll-free number above.
