Employee Assistance Program

Meridian’s wellbeing team is committed to the health and wellbeing of people working in the community services sector, LGBTIQA+ employees and their families, carers and allies. We recognise that from time to time, community sector employees, LGBTIQA+ employees and their families, carers and allies may need additional professional and confidential help and support with personal or work-related issues that affect their health, well-being, or job performance. We aim to provide a specialised community-focused human experience that enhances the emotional, mental and general psychological wellbeing of all community sector and LGBTIQA+ employees.

We believe that safe, inclusive, confidential and free access to an EAP is essential for LGBTIQA+ employees. We also believe that access to professional EAP services for employees of community sector organisations enables effective community service delivery and a balanced and healthy workplace environment.

We offer support and perspective to the challenges of personal or work-related issues using an integrated and holistic approach to client wellbeing.

We can see clients face-to-face, by phone or web-based platforms – whatever is the most confidential and safe option for the client.
