Employee Assistance Program


The Albuquerque Public Schools Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential SHORT TERM, program that helps employees work through various life challenges that may adversely affect job performance.  EAP services include assessments, counseling, and referrals for additional services to employees with personal and/or work-related concerns that are adversely affecting the employee’s job performance.

Referrals to the Albuquerque Public Schools Employee Assistance Program can be made by employees, supervisors and administrators by calling the program at (505) 884 9738.  Once a referral is received, an appointment with the EAP Counselor will be scheduled as quickly as possible.  No Walk-ins Please!

The Employee Assistance Program can provide up to five counseling sessions. If further counseling services are needed the employee will be given options for additional external counseling services.

If you have any questions concerning the Albuquerque Public Schools Employee Assistance Program feel free to call the EAP office at (505) 884 9738.
