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 Medical Center in Orange as well as their dependents. This program is administered by Cascade Centers, an EAP provider since 1978, with oversight from UCI Human Resources.

Services are available in person, over the phone and online. All of the services provided under EAP are available by a single point of contact via a toll-free telephone number, 24/7. Callers need to identify their connection to the University of California, Irvine as either an employee or a dependent of an employee. Multilingual counselors are available. The first 3 counseling sessions for each issue are 100% free and covered by EAP.  After the initial 3 EAP covered sessions, care may be transitioned to UC
