Stay Tuned! We are currently creating our December 3, 2021 program and will post soon! 


Please take a couple minutes to read this beautiful message written by Ellen Stone and the Diversity Committee

October is: Global Diversity Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Some other important dates:

  • Hispanic Heritage month which continues from Sept. 15th to Oct. 15th
  • October 1st is: Native American Women’s Equal Pay Day and Oct. 29th is Latinx Women’s Equal Pay Day.
  • October 10th is World Mental Health Day
  • Oct. 11th is National Coming Out Day, designating the date in 1987 when a gay and lesbian equality march to Washington D.C. took place
  • Oct 11th, 2021, is also a Federal Holiday which is going through some transformation in the way it is being designated and celebrated in this country.  This is the subject of this month’s message.

For years, there have been objections to Columbus Day being a federal holiday due to the exploitative nature of the first European Explorers in America.  READ MORE

The Resource Directory is a central source of services that fall under the EAP umbrella and is a great tool for all.  We encourage you to use and share with your colleagues.

Please use the Resource Directory if you are looking for up to date information on treatment centers' recent changes, additions or reduction of services. The link also provides contact information for each center's outreach professional.

This list has been provided by the Chicagoland Professional Liaison Association, which is an organization for outreach professionals in the behavioral health field working in the Greater Chicagoland area. We thank the group for sharing this information with their NIEAPA colleagues.
