Faculty & Staff Assistance Program

FSAP ELECTION 2020 DISCUSSION

The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) welcomes Georgetown employees (all staff, faculty and AAPs) to engage in a safe and stimulating conversation on how the outcome of the current election may affect us emotionally. We will have a discussion from 10-11 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3 and 1-2 pm on Wednesday, November 4. Zoom information for these meetings was emailed to all faculty and staff on October 30, 2020. Please contact fsap@georgetown if you need this information.

This is intended to be a respectful and inclusive conversation for all views. However, this is not a confidential clinical session or group therapy. Participants are requested to observe all relevant Georgetown University policies for professional conduct and civility in the workplace. 

Every American is invested in the results of this election and regardless of the outcome it is likely that we will experience an emotional response. With this in mind, the FSAP is offering an opportunity to our community to share their thoughts and feelings as the election outcome unfolds. We will also be able to suggest resources for continued support beyond this conversation. 

We look forward to seeing you either on November 3 or 4.

FSAP Services

Georgetown University’s Faculty & Staff Assistance Program provides free, confidential counseling, consultation, and educational services to faculty, staff and their immediate family members. We can assist with a variety of personal and work-related concerns, including mental health issues, workplace conflict, relationship problems, parenting stress, and substance abuse.

  • Online mental health screening;
  • Short-term counseling for faculty and staff with mental health, work-related, or other concerns that may affect job performance; 
  • Consultation with supervisors on managing troubled employees and improving employee job performance;
  • Trainings and workshops on managing mental health and work/life balance, improving workplace skills, and on FSAP services;
  • Referrals to community resources for mental health/psychosocial support and other types of assistance.

Employees may refer themselves or supervisors can suggest that employees take advantage of FSAP’s confidential services to deal with personal difficulties that come to the supervisor’s attention. Under certain circumstances, supervisors may make formal referrals when the employee’s job performance is seriously deteriorating. All referrals to FSAP are voluntary.
