Georgia Tech maintains the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) to provide help at no cost to employees who suffer from personal/emotional problems that may affect performance at work. Provided services include, but are not limited to:
- Psychosocial assessment for mental health problems such as depression, nervous, or emotional disorders, and substance abuse;
- Life transition assistance (divorce, retirement, marital distress, etc.); and
- Counseling, referral, case management, and follow-up.
FSAP services also include supervisory and management consultation on work/life situations which may impair the functioning of a team or departmental staff. Although the FSAP does not provide direct medical, financial, or legal services, the FSAP may be of assistance in obtaining referrals to appropriate professional providers.
An employee's voluntary decision to seek assistance from the FSAP will not be used as the basis for disciplinary action and will not be a defense to the imposition of disciplinary action where facts proving a violation of university policy are obtained outside of the FSAP. The FSAP program is staffed by an EAP (Employee Assistance Professional) counselor who is also a licensed provider of mental health services in the state of Georgia.
