June 26, 2014 -- Beginning July 1, Deer Oaks will be the new provider for CNM’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Deer Oaks brings a wealth of experience in working with higher education institutions and CNM is pleased to continue to provide its employees with a high quality EAP service.
July 16, 2015

All eligible employees and dependents of Central NM Community College are able to receive up to six (6)-confidential short-term counseling visits, per person, per issue, per year.  Since we have pre-paid for this benefit, it is at no cost to you. 

The EAP is not only free to all qualified employees and dependents, but it is also confidential. Deer Oaks’ clinicians are well-versed in helping clients of all ages. They are accessible at numerous locations throughout the area.

Deer Oaks EAP can assist with many different types of problems.  Among these are stress, depression, anxiety, workplace difficulties, substance abuse, marital problems, family and parenting conflicts, grief, violence and unhealthy lifestyles. The EAP will also provide additional assistance with tools, and referrals for:

  • Childcare and Eldercare Resources
  • Financial and Legal Resources
  • Child and Parenting Support Services
  • Retiree Assistance Resources
  • College Resources
  • Moving Resources

The EAP is available when you need it -- 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Deer Oaks will also coordinate with the Central NM Community College’s healthcare plans, for cases that require treatment under your medical benefit.

We will be hosting “Orientation” sessions soon.  A schedule will be released, along with EAP brochures, wallet cards, and other program collateral. 

Please call Deer Oaks toll-free at (866) 327-2400, for more information, or to obtain a referral.  Online tools and resources may be accessed at, using CNM to log in.
