The University of Miami offers two main resources for the mental health and well-being of its faculty and staff:

• Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP)
• Concordia Behavioral Health (formerly UMBH)

UPDATE: University of Miami Behavioral Health Benefits Now Offered Through Concordia
We are pleased to announce the partnership and merger of operations of Concordia Behavioral Health (Concordia) and University of Miami Behavioral Health (UMBH). In this partnership, the goal of both entities is to provide members with a high quality behavioral health benefit program.  Effective February 1, 2014, Concordia will manage the behavioral health benefits for UM faculty, staff, and their families. Current benefits, copays, provider networks, and behavioral health services will not be affected by this transition. If you are currently receiving care through a UMBH provider, your relationship with the provider will not change. To begin receiving care with a behavioral health specialist or for more information about Concordia, please contact them at 1-800-294-8642 or visit
