NRSA Postdoctoral Trainees (PDTs) are eligible to participate in the Gallagher-managed Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Gallagher-managed EAP services provide NRSA PDTs, and their families access to free, confidential, 24/7 counseling and referral services for personal and professional life issues from any location. EAP services are available by phone, email, webchat, video, and through face-to-face sessions. EAP counselors will connect you with the right experts at the right time: masters level clinicians, work/life specialists, medical bill negotiators, and financial and legal professionals.  

In addition, NRSA PDTs and their family members can access free and confidential support on legal and financial topics. Receive 30 minutes of free legal consultation over the phone. The number of initial consultations per year on each new legal topic is unlimited. You can also receive 30 minutes of over-the-phone access to financial guidance about everything from managing current debt to making decisions about future purchases.
