Each day, we often face challenges that may impact our quality of life. Whether it is juggling between work and family, relationship stress, school, health, finances or other situations, it is not uncommon to become overwhelmed.

The Department of the Navy Civilian Employee Assistance program (DONCEAP) is here to provide civilian employees and their family members the support to overcome these challenges. With its comprehensive program, it allows civilian employees the benefit and support to help in various issues which include child care, financial services, elder care, employee assistance and work/life services, legal services and more.

“The DONCEAP is a free confidential resource for employees, supervisors and their families. It is a comprehensive program that helps employees resolve personal problems that may adversely impact their work performance, conduct, health and well-being,” said Lisa Westly, DONCEAP counselor at Navy Region Hawaii.

In addition to free resources, it provides a 24/7 toll-free access, short-term problem-solving counseling and referral, supervisor and management skills consultation, orientations, health and wellness presentations, and crisis response services.

“Seeking assistance for personal issues is both smart and a sign of personal strength. Contacting DONCEAP early on may help to mitigate the situation before it snowballs into something unmanageable, but the program is here to assist with bigger issues as well,” Westly said.

To learn more about DONCEAP, visit http:// or contact 1-844-366-2327. To schedule an appointment with the DONCEAP counselor, Lisa Westly, visit the Federal Occupation Health Office located on the 2nd floor of Building 1 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam between the hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
