Healthy Workplace

We are delighted to introduce the Healthy Workplace initiative where you can find health and wellness programs and information which are available on campus and in the community. 

Employee Assistance Program (EAP):

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a UMass Lowell-sponsored program to provide employees with confidential assistance with stress, substance abuse, family concerns and other personal problems.  LifeScope is the name of the program and it is managed by E4 Health with offices in Shrewsbury, MA.

These benefits are confidential and are available to all benefited faculty and staff, household members of faculty and staff (including roommates) and any immediate family member of faculty and staff who is impacted by the challenges facing the immediate family member.  Immediate family members include parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters and children.
