Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for you at Karolinska Institutet

As an employee, you can contact the EAP (Staff support) directly without the approval of your manager or HR. You always receive a personal service and your case is treated completely anonymously and confidentially in relation to us as an employer and society in general.

The EAP service is available to all Karolinska Institutet employees as well as scholarship-financed doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows
– around the clock, all year round.

At the first contact, you get to talk to a sociologist/behavioral scientist who can provide direct guidance/counselling. If the assessment concludes that there is a need for contact with another specialist, there is a possibility to talk to a psychologist, psychotherapist, lawyer or economist for advice and guidance. The consultations with the specialists take place by telephone.

The EAP includes guidance/support in the following areas:

  • Work-related problems
  • Legal issues
  • Cohabitation/relationship problems
  • Health and lifestyle problems
  • Economic problems
  • Social problems
  • Spiritual/existential problems
  • Personal crises
  • Alcohol, drugs and gambling
  • Management support
