In addition to the Employee BIT, GRCC has a Behavioral Intervention Team specifically focused on student concerns.

GRCC also provides employees an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) resource. The EAP is intended to help employees understand and receive help with personal problems that might adversely impact their health and well-being. Some examples of issues our EAP can be very beneficial for are: stress, marital problems, depression, anger management, anxiety and physical illness.
