Support mental health with a valued employee benefit
Many issues can cause employees to become emotionally distressed or distracted by life challenges, limiting their ability to perform. Which is why our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) helpline, PAM Assist, is resourced by professionally qualified counsellors.
Our counsellors act as the first point of contact, providing a counselling service on a wide range of topics. Such as relationship breakdown, health concerns, debt worries, eldercare or childcare anxieties, domestic abuse, legal issues and stressful work environments.

FINDING THE RIGHT PATHWAY
Employee assistance programme mental health pathways
Upon contacting the EAP, via the helpline, portal or app, the counsellor will triage the enquiry as follows:
- Advice required – with immediate emotional and practical support given
- Referral for specialist consultation – with expert legal, financial or medical colleague
- Therapy required – with up to six sessions of counselling therapy, such as CBT, arranged
- Different delivery required – such as face-to-face or telephonic (if entered via email)
- Emergency assistance – if a red flag is raised indicating the person at risk of suicide
Our approach to triage is to provide short-term counselling then determine the correct pathway for longer-term mental health support if needed.
We also encourage managers to use the EAP for tips on managing their team’s emotions.Request a demo to learn more
