Virtual Mental Health Support

Georgetown University is committed to supporting faculty and staff during this unsettling time. Virtual therapy and coaching from One Medical are available at no cost to eligible U.S.-based faculty and staff. The program gives employees fast, convenient, and free access to one-on-one mental health help through video appointments. The addition of One Medical is a complement during this challenging time to the mental health resources provided through University-sponsored health plans and the services offered through the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP).

Limited exceptions may be granted for travel that is deemed “essential,” or travel to low-risk destinations as defined in the University’s COVID-19 Spring and Summer Travel Policy. Georgetown study abroad programs offered by the Office of Global Education during the Summer 2021 term (May-August 2021) and all other university-sponsored undergraduate, non-credit international travel are suspended through August 15, 2021.
