Employees in Distress

U Matter, We Care Philosophyu_matter_logo

UF community members care about each other and proactively reach out to help when needed. U Matter, We Care extends UF’s caring culture by educating our community about signs and symptoms of distress, and providing those in distress with appropriate resources to receive professional assistance.

What to do?

Reach out to those in distress by helping them know how to access resources. It could be your friend, colleague, or loved one who needs support.

Helping Employees in Distress

UF’s Helping Employees in Distress Resource Guide is a publication designed to explain how UF employees who encounter disruptive or troubled co-workers can obtain assistance.
