Faculty/Staff Assistance Office

The Boston University Faculty/Staff Assistance Office provides confidential counseling and referral services. It is available to you and your family members if you are experiencing personal, family, or work-related problems. Services are available without charge and include:

  • Consultation
  • Problem assessment
  • Short-term psychotherapy
  • Referral resource information

If you have a problem and are in doubt about the wisest course of action, we encourage you to contact the program. In response to your call, a counselor will meet with you to discuss your problem and consider solutions. If additional specialized counseling proves necessary, a referral will be made. Inquiries are confidential; no one will know you have used the Faculty/Staff Assistance Office unless you tell them.
