Custom Approach

Employee Assistance Provider - EAP

As an Employee Assistance Provider, Hunterlink National is dedicated to excellence in support services on a 24hr basis for the working industry in Australia, including international seafarers visiting Australian waters.

At Hunterlink we understand that sometimes life deals situations that are too difficult to deal with alone. People and organisations need expert support to work through personal issues or critical incidents that can impact an entire workforce.

At Hunterlink we have worked with thousands of individuals, and a range of organisations, to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown, substance abuse, suicide, mental illness, deaths in the workplace and more. Our team of highly trained experts travel to every corner of Australia to provide support and assistance when needed. We take calls in the middle of the night because we know there is no convenient time to have a crisis.
