ADDRESSING THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES THROUGH SPECIALIZED EAP PROGRAMS
AbstractIn the evolving landscape of mental health support, there exists a commitment to enhancing the emotional well-being of minoritized individuals and populations. Specialized employee assistance programs (EAPs) set out to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health by ensuring increased access to therapists specializing in specific minoritized communities. As they delved into the challenges faced by their client population, a realization emerged – workplace-related stress, fueled by microaggressions, biases, and discrimination, became a significant concern. This revelation prompted a shift towards offering services to organizations with the aim of fostering inclusive and supportive work environments. This poster explores how the unique approach of specialized EAPs can be adapted into traditional EAP models to serve marginalized populations better.
