FSAP/Carebridge Update

FSAP/Carebridge Resources

Now that Brown has completed his time on campus, Syracuse University staff, faculty, graduate assistants and their families may continue to reach Carebridge 24 hours a day by calling 800.437.0911. Carebridge offers independent, confidential counseling by phone and through local providers, as well as support in a wide array of work-life areas, including child and elder care, personal finance, tobacco cessation and more.
