There are times when all of us have felt overwhelmed by challenges, whether they are financial, social, or we’re just not doing so well at coping with everyday life. The stress of trying to balance our studies with work and family responsibilities–while meeting our own personal needs–can produce major anxiety. Or we might need help with an emergency, like caring for a sick relative, or handling an unexpected legal issue.
The Office of Student Support is here for you. The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is now live and available for all UB students. The program provides free access to short-term therapy, crisis counseling, financial planning, legal assistance, eldercare and childcare. Students can access the services 24/7 by calling 1.800.327.2251. You will be connected with a Student Care Coordinator who is a master’s-level clinician. The hotline is free to use and confidential. The fact that you sought services will not be reported in a future background check.
For more information, contact the SAP directly or reach out to the Office of Student Support’s Clinical Case Manager, Tony DuLaney, LCPC, at 410.837.5159. The Clinical Case Manager works closely with Assistant Dean of Students Paul Manrique to connect students with on-campus and off-campus resources in an effort to encourage holistic student success.
Tony DuLaney’s office is located in Academic Center 111. You can also always begin by reaching out to Dean Manrique, who is located in the Dean’s Suite in Room 711, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
