We believe everyone upon occasion faces problems that can be difficult to resolve. The staff of FSAS is dedicated to providing quality, confidential assistance to employees and their families who may be experiencing difficulties that impact their lives. This includes assessments, short-term counseling, crisis services and referrals to appropriate resources.

The FSAS offers this benefit free of charge to all faculty, staff, retirees and family members or significant others living in their household. Additionally we work with supervisors as well as entire departments to develop and maintain a positive work environment. The FSAS staff is composed of licensed professionals who offer assessment, brief counseling and if necessary, referrals to appropriate resources.

In these uncertain and challenging times, the health and safety of our clients, staff, and community are our number one concern. Based on this, Faculty Staff Assistance Services (FSAS) has discontinued face to face sessions and shifted to phone and virtual services until April 1st, and possibly longer. FSAS remains available to address any urgent needs and concerns of our clients and other stakeholders. Please feel free to contact us at fsas@illinois.edu or 217.244.5312 during our standard business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. If this is a crisis situation, outside of regular business hours, please call the crisis line at 217.244.7739.
