Services for Faculty and Staff
(including residents, postdocs, and clinical fellows)
Located at the Laurel Heights campus (3333 California Street), The Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) provides voluntary, confidential, individual counseling services to the employees of the University of California, San Francisco. The FSAP team consists of licensed counselors who provide consultation and brief counseling services.
Our staff can help you with any of the following types of issues:
- Substance abuse (alcohol or drugs)
- Traumatic events
- Domestic violence
- Crisis situations
- Parenting issues
- Coping with disabilities
- Partnership concerns
- Anger management problems
- Elder or dependent care
- Grief and loss
- Problems with job performance
- Interpersonal conflict (with supervisors, peers, or subordinates)
- Competing professional and personal demands
- Organizational transitions
- Changes in roles and responsibilities
Our program provides short-term assistance (up to three sessions). We do not provide ongoing treatment, however, when appropriate FSAP will provide referrals under your insurance plan, or to other community/health care resources, depending on your needs.
The Faculty & Staff Assistance Program is entirely voluntary; we are a resource to help you resolve problems. Utilizing FSAP does not, however, relieve you of the responsibility to provide good work performance.
All discussions with FSAP counselors are confidential and will not become part of your personnel file. The counselor will not release information to other individuals unless you authorize them to do so.
To schedule an appointment to meet with an FSAP counselor, please contact us at (415) 476-8279. Appointments are not made via email. We look forward to assisting you.
