Mission of the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program
The mission of the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program is to assist:
(1) the university in addressing productivity issues, and (2) "employee clients" in identifying and resolving personal concerns, including, but not limited to, health, marital, family, financial, alcohol, drug, legal, emotional, stress, or other personal issues that may affect job performance.
The core components of the FSAP approach are:
- Consultation with, training of, and assistance to university leadership (managers, supervisors, and union members) seeking to manage the troubled employee and improve employee job performance;
- Outreach to and education of employees and their family members about availability of FSAP services;
- Confidential and timely problem identification/assessment services for employee clients who have personal concerns that may affect job performance;
- Use of constructive confrontation, motivation, and short-term intervention with employee clients to address problems that affect job performance;
- Referral of employee clients for diagnosis, treatment, and assistance;
- Case monitoring and follow-up services;
- Consultation to the university in establishing and maintaining effective relations with treatment and other service providers; and
- Consultation to the university to encourage availability of and employee access to health benefits covering medical and behavioral problems, including, but not limited to, mental and emotional disorders and substance abuse.
