For Those Affected by the Earthquake in Haiti

Many members of our Emory community have been personally affected by the recent earthquakes in Haiti. Resources are available to help those who are in need of support.

Employees seeking information on relatives in Haiti can call the U. S. State Department Hotline at 888-407-4747. Employees may take available personal leave or Family and Medical Leave as necessary.

Locally, Emory offers benefits and services for those who may need support and encouragement during this time.

In addition to pastoral counseling from the Office of Religious Life or the Center for Pastoral Services, the Faculty Staff Assistance Program offers free and confidential counseling services. Counselors are available 24/7 to provide emotional support to employees and their immediate household family members.  Contact FSAP at 404-727-4328 for assistance or to schedule an appointment, or visit www.fsap.emory.edu for more information.

Aetna Behavioral Health is also offering support to all Aetna plan members during this time. Aetna members may contact Aetna 24/7 at 888-238-6232 for consultation, support, information and referrals to various resources, including community-based, governmental and relief agencies.
