Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

To All RIOC Employees:

In light of Officer Fischer’s passing, RIOC’s Executive Team has reached out to NYS Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to find ways we can offer emotional support and guidance to our employees during this difficult time.  

Employees seeking help can call either of the hotlines that are covered by mental health professionals:

  • New York State Mental Health hotline: (844) 863-9314
  • New York City Well: (888) 692-9355

We have also attached the following resource flyers in the hope you may find them helpful:

The state has also partnered with Headspace to provide some free links to meditation and stress reduction during this difficult time. Employees can access this information by visiting: headspace.com/ny
