Employee Assistance Program

The Perspectives Employee Assistance Program offers confidential assistance to Augustana employees  (both full-time and part-time) and their families.

Your personal information is not disclosed to anyone unless you provide written consent or as required by law. Services are provided at no cost to you. If Perspectives refers you to an outside resource for additional support, you will be advised about potential costs and whether they may be covered by your insurance.

Call or text 800-456-6327 or download the Perspectives Spark App and use the ‘Get Help’ option to submit a contact request.

Appointments are available in person, through video conference or by phone. Use the “Live Chat” feature on the Perspectives Online Portal to instant message with a counselor 9 a.m.-5 p.m. CST Monday-Friday.
