The EAP offers Supports for Intimate Partner Abuse

October is  Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Mass General Brigham EAP is always available to assist anyone who is in an unsafe situation and those who care about them. Contact the EAP at 866-724-4327 or request an appointment via our online form for confidential assistance.

  • Emotional

  • Physical
  • Sexual
  • Financial

In addition to appointments for assistance, the EAP offers several resources on intimate partner abuse, sexual assault, and trauma:
