“When we learned about the opportunity to provide the screening of the documentary film Angst to the community and to be part of a movement to bring awareness to, and help eradicate, the stigma around anxiety, I couldn’t pass up the chance for Ulliance to support this great cause,” said Kent Sharkey, President and CEO of Ulliance. “This is what we do every day for our clients’ employees and/or students—provide emotional well-being through our employee (EAP) and student assistance programs (SAP). What a great opportunity to partner with a long-time client that utilizes both our EAP and SAP services, Madonna University, to host the screening on their campus,” Sharkey added.
“This powerful film shows how students really feel about anxiety. It is a large part of daily life for persons of all ages, yet not everyone feels they can talk about it. We are honored to host this documentary on our campus to open the conversation with students, staff, faculty, and our community about resources that can provide hope” said Christine Benson, Ph.D., Madonna University assistant vice president and dean of students.
There is a special cameo appearance in the film by Michael Phelps
where he talks openly about his struggles with anxiety.

In the role of an Account Manager at Ulliance, many are working with companies who are facing the current opiate crisis. This epidemic is not only having a dollars and cents impact on the workforce – for many companies, the heroin epidemic is having an adverse impact on the community as a whole. In many cases, companies are having a difficult time filling job vacancies due to the complex and/or specialized nature of the work. As a result, more companies are changing their Alcohol & Drug Policies to encourage employees with a substance abuse problem to come forward and ask for help. Ulliance has worked with company HR departments and Safety Directors to revise Alcohol & Drug Policies based on our expertise and SHRM best-practice guidelines (standard EAP programs don’t offer this and companies would have to partner with a third party and pay to have this done). One of our Ulliance Account Managers works with two companies where such policies are in place – if an employee self-discloses a problem with alcohol or other drugs, the company will help the employee find appropriate treatment. Referral to the EAP is a part of this process. But the partnership with Ulliance goes beyond EAP counseling. Ulliance provides unlimited management and HR consultations regarding substance use issues in the workplace, and any another HR issue or problem.
Imagine not waking up to an alarm clock. Then picture yourself enjoying a nice cup of coffee or tea before heading off to a late morning yoga class, followed by lunch with a friend, topped off with an afternoon meditation class and a long brisk walk. You retire for the evening with a sensible, healthy dinner and a good book or movie.
Does this sound like a typical day for you? Probably not. It’s easy to come up with a list of ways to de-stress: yoga, taking classes, exercise, quality time with friends and family, pursuing a favorite hobby. But how realistic is it to get all of that done in one day? Or even in one week?
Everyone has problems, but how can the problems of employees impact employers? Let's face it, life can be full of challenges whether large or small personal or work-related and the sooner they are overcome the sooner we are able to focus on leading a happier healthier life, while friends and family are often invaluable in providing us with the help and support we need in everyday life, sometimes situations arise where we need to look elsewhere for advice. In these circumstances the Ulliance Life Advisor Employee Assistance Program is here to help.
