The most valuable asset of the City of Albuquerque is its employees.
Both City employees and the organization benefit when employees reach out to employee health services. We will assist both you and your family no matter what department you work with.
Employee counseling, crisis intervention, referral services, are for both employees and family members living in the home. Professional counselors offer assistance with concerns about relationships, grief, parenting, work issues, depression, anxiety, stress, and everything else life may toss your way.
We provide personal training for exercise and strength, body composition analysis, cardiovascular endurance testing, back strengthening, and a variety of health education classes: CPR, AED training, weight management, fitness testing, basic first aid, stress management, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and more.
The only part of life we have control over is what we think. We can help you become very good at living well so you can look back on your life and feel respect for yourself, knowing you gave it your best, you played to win.
Your privacy is protected by strict confidentiality laws and regulations.
City employees may access the EAP on a voluntary basis or may be referred by supervisors or HR personnel as part of corrective action and performance management. Temp employees not employed directly through the city do not qualify for EAP; however, we are happy to facilitate referrals for these employees.
Employees may voluntarily access services through the EAP at any time, free of charge. All employees who are volunatirly accessing services during their scheduled work hours (exempt, non-exempt, full time, and part time) will need to utilize sick leave (or other authorized accrued leave) during all scheduled EAP appointments.
Supervisors or human resources may require employee participation in EAP services as part of performance management and/or progressive disciplinary action. When this is the case, the employee will be required to contact the City's Employee Assistance Program and follow whatever course of action the counselors propose. The initial assessment by the EAP counselor may be completed on city time without taking leave; however, any subsequent appointments and/or recommended treatment will need to be completed either on the employee's own time or will require the use of sick leave (or other authorized accrued leave).
Questions regarding the use of leave in particular instances should be directed to Employee Relations within the Human Resources Department.
