What Happens at the OEA

As much as we’d like to separate our work life from our personal problems, it is often difficult to do so. Without even realizing it, we may find that our mind wanders, we miss work — or when we are there, we’re not really all there. That is why FIU created the Office of Employee Assistance. OEA provides confidential, professional assessment, intervention and/or referral depending upon the nature of the problem and the specific circumstances. You will be able to consult with an experienced clinician who will listen to your concerns, discuss and explore your options, and then work with you to determine a plan of action.
