Clinical Services

Mercer Council’s Employee Assistance Program is known as the Metro Employee Assistance Service, or MEAS for short. This program serves to provide support for employees of various companies and businesses through hardships, transitions, mental health or substance-related challenges, and other events in an individual’s personal and professional life that can be difficult to navigate.

MEAS is meant to be a short-term, confidential counseling service that supports employees and members of their household, as they work to reach their goals and navigate through challenging life events to work towards their mental and emotional well-being. Employees and household members of our contracted agencies can utilize MEAS by self-referral or through supervisory referral and can seek services for a number of presenting challenges, no matter how big or small these challenges may seem.

Please note that these services are only offered through employers that are contracted with Mercer Council. If your business or agency is interested in partnering with Mercer Council to provide these services to your employees, please contact us.

Scope of Services

MEAS supports any eligible individuals who experience situations that affect their well-being and work performance. These eligible individuals will receive between 2 and 5 sessions per episode of services and will be able to access an additional 2-5 sessions after 90 days have elapsed since their last session.

Our employee assistance services include:

  • Individual and Family Sessions
  • Administrative and Supervisory Consultation Sessions
  • Training (in a variety of content areas)
  • Clinical Assessments and Referrals to appropriate levels of care
  • Referrals to non-clinical services/experts
  • Mediations between colleagues
