Emotional Support Following Tragic Events

Recent tragic events, both here and abroad, have affected all of us. For those who are struggling with emotions or stress, FSAP can provide support through individual appointments and group debriefing sessions.

FSAP provides free, confidential counseling services by licensed professionals and assistance in obtaining referrals to community providers. FSAP counselors are available to discuss a variety of concerns, including stress management, grief/loss, anxiety, depression and personal and work relationships. Services are available to employees and their immediate family members.

If you need someone to talk to, please call 404-727-WELL or email us at efsap@emory.edu.
