Welcome to FSAP

Most challenges that come our way we manage by ourselves, or with help from family, friends, and co-workers. Sometimes, though, solutions are hard to find, and we need another perspective. 

FSAP's professional staff offers free and confidential guidance and support to benefits-eligible employees and their partners to address issues that may be affecting their personal lives and/or job satisfaction or performance. The FSAP is part of Cornell's broad commitment to foster and support the mental health and well-being of the campus community.

Services include:

  • Personal consultation and needs assessment
  • Information about and referral to campus or community resources and services
  • Short-term counseling provided in a language you are comfortable speaking (language assistance available).
  • Consultation with supervisors, managers, and others who are concerned about an employee or workplace situation
  • Crisis response and community support

Call FSAP:

  • During office hours to schedule a phone or in person appointment, or for urgent consultation.
  • After hours (evenings and weekends) to consult with the
    on-call provider about urgent mental health concerns

We encourage you to contact FSAP when:

  • You need information about resources available on campus or in the community that could be helpful to you, a family member, co-worker, or friend.
  • A personal or work-related issue raises questions or concerns, or challenges your sense of well-being or job performance.
  • You have concerns about someone you work with (a colleague, co-worker, supervisor, student, or other member of the Cornell community).
  • Something in the work environment is creating stress, or harming the morale, productivity, job satisfaction, or relationships of a work group.
  • An individual or work group experiences a crisis, or is affected by a community tragedy or loss.
