Welcome to the Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a benefit program intended to ensure a healthy work environment for all staff. Through a partnership between Pasco County Schools and New Directions (our behavioral health care provider), our employees will have access to enhanced services. These services include counseling and referral for personal or work-related issues, health coaching, legal and financial consultation, and a wealth of online resources.

Change in our text therapy service
After January 1st, 2021 our access to new referrals for text therapy will go through BetterHelp. Anyone who has begun working with a Talkspace therapist prior to December 31st, 2020 will have 120 days to complete their sessions. New registration information for BetterHelp will be on the “Counselors and Locations” link in the green navigation box in the upper right-hand corner of this webpage after we return from Winter Break in January. As always, if you need assistance in setting up text therapy before or after January 1st, you can call our EAP plan administrator – New Directions Behavioral Health – at 800-624-5544.
