15.F Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) and UMHS Employee Assistance Program (UMHS EAP)

The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) is a resource for all University faculty, staff, retirees, and their immediate family members. FASAP provides confidential assessment, problem resolution counseling, and referral recommendations, when needed, to individuals with personal difficulties encountered at work or home.

FASAP also provides personalized coaching services to assist with achieving professional or personal goals such as overcoming procrastination, improving work organization, and completing specific projects. Certified FASAP coaches/counselors can help individuals identify competencies they want to develop, identify barriers that may be in the way of achieving those competencies, and develop a personalized action plan to achieve their goals.

Other services include short-term counseling on personal, emotional, and family issues including marital or partner concerns, depression, anxiety, and alcohol or other drug abuse. The staff also offers critical incident, trauma, and grief counseling. FASAP services are confidential and free of charge.
A variety of educational brown bag lunches on emotional health topics are also offered, which can be held in University departments or units upon request. For more information, consult the FASAP website at <>, and SPG 201.14.

The U-M Health System's Employee Assistance Program (UMHS EAP) provides similar counseling services for U-M Health System staff, visit <>.
