The Student and Family Assistance Program (SFAP) is not just for student problems. SFAP services are available to individual adults and couples, as well as families with other issues. Many adults come to SFAP for relationship issues, individual stress, substance abuse issues and depression. The six-session model often works well to help people get back on track with their lives. SFAP also offers legal, financial, elder care and child care support services. Many parents who do not have personal concerns may benefit from other services available to support families.
The Student and Family Assistance Program (SFAP) shared this article and short video about gratitude. The Thanksgiving holiday is often a reminder to practice gratitude and appreciation. However, in the midst of these uncertain times, we are hearing more and more about the positive impact practicing gratitude has on our overall well-being and its effects on rewiring the brain's neural pathways for happiness and decreasing negative or anxious thoughts.
Getting a flu shot is always important but reducing illness and hospitalization from flu is critical this year. Both influenza and COVID-19 are respiratory illnesses, but until there is a vaccine against COVID-19, the way to help prevent these two viruses from circulating at the same time is to get your flu vaccine now. Flu can be dangerous, for both adults and children. The best treatment is prevention. We all need to do everything possible to make a difference this flu season, so let's keep people flu-free while we focus on ending COVID-19.
