What is an Employee Assistance Program?

Employee assistance programs (EAP) are work-based programs designed to help employees cope with personal problems that may adversely affect their work performance, health, and well-being. EAPs typically provide short-term counseling and referral services for employees and their families.

Employee assistance programs are usually offered by employers as a voluntary benefit for employees. However, some employers require employees to participate in an EAP as a condition of employment.


Employee mental health in Turkey

employee wellness

Turkey has a population of over 85 million people and is considered to have a young population with a median age of 30. The country has a rapidly growing economy and is categorized as an emerging market. Turkey is also considered to be a part of the European Union, although it is not a member state. Mental health in Turkey has been an issue of concern for many years. In 2010, the Turkish government enacted a law that requires employers to provide mental health support for their employees. The law also requires employers to provide training on mental health issues and to create awareness about mental health among employees. The prevalence of mental health problems in Turkey is not well known, but it is estimated that around 20% of the population suffers from some form of mental illness. Mental health problems are more common among women than men. There are a number of reasons why mental health problems are prevalent in Turkey. The country has a high rate of unemployment, which can lead to stress and anxiety. In addition, the government has been slow to address the issue of mental health and provide adequate resources for mental health care.
