Occupational Mental Health Programs

Duke Professional and Personal Development Program (PPDP) and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) are subsidiaries of the OEM's Occupational Mental Health Programs. Our expertise enables us to offer organizations a range of services to help build and maintain healthy individuals and productive workplaces.

Our PPDP services include leadership, performance, and life coaching; consultation, training, corporate and health care presentations/workshops; and retreat facilitation. These services can be provided in-person, telephonically, onsite, and/or off site. We work collaboratively to understand the needs of each individual, team or organization and to tailor services that are “just right” for you. Our experienced, dedicated staff is available to assist with customizing a response to your unique business needs.

Our goal as a fee-for-service EAP is to prevent small problems from becoming larger ones, to provide troubled employees with the assistance they need to improve their professional, personal, and/or work life, and to enhance the well-being of each organization’s workforce.
