What is the SAP?

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) offered through Employee & Family Resource (EFR) is designed to help students, families, and schools manage the impact a wide variety of personal and family problems can have on student behavior and achievement. Free and confidential services, accessible 24/7 by calling 515.244.6090, include:

  • Telephonic consultation for assistance on challenges you or your family may be facing (no limit)
  • Live chat consultation is also available via the chat button at the above link
  • Six (6) sessions of in-person counseling with masters-level clinicians
  • Referrals to community resources, if needed

All services can be interpreted to non-English-speaking clients at no additional cost.
