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. 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 located in Clearwater. A student can call the toll free number, 1-800-878-5470 (24 hours per day, seven day per week) for assistance. Once the student makes the telephone call, he/she will be given telephone numbers of several private licensed therapists, counselors, or clinical psychologists in his/her respective community that he/she may call and arrange for an appointment. Professional help is available to the student that can address a broad spectrum of issues — behavioral, emotional, substance abuse, relationships, and other problems. Monitoring and follow-up services are included.
