Rocky Mountain Research (RMR) is a specialized consulting practice that specifically focuses on EAP, work/life, and wellness benefit delivery models. A variety of services are offered to academics, corporate directors, external vendors, and professional associations aimed at evaluating, developing, and implementing delivery service models. Currently, Patricia is working with Chestnut Health Systems on a workplace inclusion scale (WIS). But Dr. Herlihy’s main focus these days is her work with Professor Jodi Frey of the University of Maryland on the International Employee Assistance Digital Archive: www.eaarchive.org.
The International Employee Assistance Digital Archive (www.EAArchive.org) or Knowledge Hub is an open-access global repository that houses publicly available original works, historical documents, current research, and multimedia of interest to employee assistance professionals and the broader field of workplace behavioral health. In 2013, Patricia Herlihy and Jodi Frey created this repository in an attempt to gather a plethora of information related to the EA field in one location. This archive is now entering its 10th year and has grown to include thousands of original works from over 1,000 authors around the globe. Currently, this resource has over 25,000 page visits and materials that have been downloaded over 200,000 times from 10 different countries.
