On July 1, the University System of Georgia partnered with KEPRO, a nationally recognized health care management company, to provide Employee Assistance Program services, which include in-person counseling sessions, referrals to community resources, supervisory consultations, crises support and work-life referrals.
KEPRO’s services are free, confidential and available to full- and part-time employees and their dependents, as well as anyone who regularly lives with the eligible employee. Services are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling toll-free 1-844-243-4440. Online resources can be accessed by visiting www.EAPHelplink.com and using company code USGCares.
An employee already working with a provider through ESPYR, the former EAP service, who would like to continue, will need to notify KEPRO with that provider information at 844-243-4440.
Employees who have questions about the new EAP may call either UGA Human Resources at 706-542-2222 or UGA Well-being at 706-542-7319.
