Balancing school, work, and everyday life can be challenging. That's why we're here to help!
Managing the demands of even small life events can be more difficult when your time and energy is heavily committed. As a result, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and stressed. Extra support and developing healthy coping skills can be helpful in these situations; and that’s exactly what the Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program (JHSAP) has to offer.
JHSAP provides suitable resources to assist students with the pressures and difficulties they may encounter during their academic careers. JHSAP is a life management resource that helps students to identify and manage challenging issues, in healthy ways.
|Some common concerns are:
- Stress and anxiety
- Life transitions
- Interpersonal relationships
- Grief and mourning
- Eating disorders
- School and work difficulties
- Academic performance and productivity
- Family and relationship concerns
- Adapting to a new environment
- Substance use concerns
- Learning disabilities
JHSAP services are free, confidential, and there is no limit to the number of times a student may access services. Immediate family members of eligible students may also access JHSAP services.
Students are eligible for an assessment and short-term assistance for managing challenges in their lives. If longer-term assistance is appropriate, students may be referred to outside resources for additional support; this can be through a particular health plan or community resources. Outside resources may charge fees for their services.
Most students affiliated with the following divisions are eligible for JHSAP services. Students can learn more about program eligibility by clicking on their school affiliation listed in the drop down menu above:
