The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) is pleased to offer free virtual drop-in counseling support during the upcoming election week (November 2-6) in the form of 1:1 virtual rooms. Drop-in counseling is helpful for employees looking to receive immediate and confidential mental health support during this election week.

Drop-in services are especially helpful for employees who

  • Are experiencing stress, anxiety, anger, or disappointment related to the U.S. election;
  • Are in conflict with family, friends, or work colleagues due to political differences;
  • Are looking for a nonpartisan individual with whom to speak openly and honestly

FSAP counselors can provide insight and perspective, teach stress-relieving skills, and be a nonpartisan listening ear. Employees will commonly use drop-ins for concerns about distress, worry, family or relationship issues, and substance abuse.
