Why do you recommend the services be anonymous?

Employees often feel more comfortable to access mental health support services when they know that it will be confidential and anonymous to their employer. Many employees can have reservations about accessing a service that reports back to employers, worrying about the stigma associated with mental health conditions and worrying there may be gossip or negative connotations from accessing counselling. In order for companies to gain the benefits of offering an EAP, employees need to be able to freely access the service, and EAP tends to have better participation rates if employees know the service is private.
