How the EAP saved my life

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

One of the communities I want to speak to works for wellness in corporate environments, and my story in Corporate Wellness reaches out to them. In it, I tell how EAP was one of the very first stops on my road to recovery from extreme obesity.

While working at the Hartford Courant newspaper in the mid-'80s, a boss called me into his office to observe that he didn't think I was very happy, and to suggest that counseling might help. I asked how to begin that process, and he sent me to the company's employee assistance program. Click on the link to pick up the story from there.

Whenever I can, I like to say thanks to that boss, Ed Lafreniere, for reaching out to me as he did, and to the EAPeeps who listened, evaluated, and pointed the way out.
