READ Employee Assistance Program (REAP SUPPORT)

The READ Clinic is able to provide the following important services to both private and public organisations.

  • Employee Assistance (individual therapy)
  • Group training and education
  • Critical Incident response and management

What are the benefits:

It is becoming increasingly important that an organisation needs to be sure of the sound mental, emotional and physical well-being of its employees. Research suggests as many as 12% of employees are troubled by some major concern at any given time. The resultant mental illness, substance abuse or other behavioural problems can have a large impact on organisational well-being.  This may be in terms of increased absenteeism, work accidents, compensation claims, decreased productivity and lowering or morale.

EAP’s are consistently shown to reduce absenteeism and accidents, reduce staff turnover, increase productivity and create a far more dynamic corporate culture. Research shows that for every corporate dollar spent on an EAP, three to five dollars are saved. More than 4 million Australians are now covered by a workplace Employee Assistance Program.

How Can We Help:

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a specific support strategy utilised by many organisations. Some of the reasons the EAP has been so effective is that the comprehensive support package is offered to all employees of an organisation, including the spouse and/or immediate family of the employee. The free, confidential and professional counselling service provided ensures both personal and work-related problems can be worked through with minimal impact upon the organisation. Some common problems are:

  • Marital / family
  • Work related issues
  • Health
  • Educational / vocational
  • Emotional
  • Alcohol / drugs
  • Financial
