Campus Assistance Program

The Campus Assistance Program (CAP) offers professional help to employees when personal issues arise. Concerns affect each individual differently. Difficulty with concentration, declining work performance, misuse of alcohol, fatigue or persistent “down” feelings may signal greater concerns which can be better coped with through discussion with a counselor.

Initial service can be obtained by talking with a member of the Counseling Services staff. Through this one time consultation, concerns can be defined and options for further assistance can be explored. If a referral to a community resource needs to be made, the Counseling Services staff will help provide the name(s) of appropriate resource(s). All aspects of this program are confidential. No permanent records will be kept by Counseling Services regarding the consultation.

There is no charge for consulting with Counseling Services. Charges for off-campus diagnostic and counseling resources will be the responsibility of the employee. Generally, costs incurred off-campus may be covered by the employee’s insurance.
