The Employee Assistance Program is available free of charge to all University of Florida faculty and staff--including OPS.

The UF Counseling & Wellness Center (http://www.counseling.ufl.edu/cwc/Default.aspx) provides support and services for students across campus. The Mission of the Counseling and Wellness Center at the University of Florida is to facilitate the total development of students by reducing psychological problems and distress and by enhancing mental health, well-being, quality of life, and optimal functioning, through the delivery of high quality, culturally sensitive services to UF students and the larger campus community. Our primary focus is on providing brief, confidential counseling aimed at helping students succeed academically and interpersonally.

Wellness has become an increasingly important part of daily life at UF.
