Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Offers Resources to Help You Cope Through These Trying Times

June 2020 

The State of Iowa understands the COVID-19 outbreak has created a challenging “new normal.” Many are teleworking, some are helping with children who aren’t in daycare or can’t go to summer camps, and others are still working on the front lines helping us stay safe and be well. DAS has posted some resources from Wellmark and the State’s Employee Assistance (EAP) provider, KEPRO. These resources are designed to help us be our best selves during these trying times. Here are a few important resources to check out:

  • Back-to-basics wellness tips that actually improve your health.
  • Calm your anxious mind during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Creating a healthy work-from-home environment that works for you.
  • Five ways to stop emotional eating.
  • COVID-19 Pandemic: Your EAP is Here to Help.
  • How to Talk to Children and Teens about the Coronavirus.
  • Returning to Work - The "New Normal."
  • Budgeting in Uncertain Times.
  • Help During Challenging Times.
