CF Student Assistance Program

The CF Student Assistance Program  is a confidential resource for assisting students who may have personal problems which could affect their school, work, or home lives. The Student Assistance Program provides early intervention and professional assessment and counseling to best meet the needs of the student. Services are free to all active CF students. The Student Assistance Program is managed by BAY CARE LIFE MANAGEMENT, a health management organization. A student may call a toll - free helpline during regular business hours Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. For crisis situations after hours, on weekends, or holidays a student may call the same number and the therapist on duty will be paged and will promptly respond to the call. For services a student may call the following toll - free number: 1‑800‑878‑5470. CF also has a counseling office where students may receive free confidential professional counseling by State licensed clinicians.
