The need for strong Employee and Family Assistance Programs (EFAP) is significant. According to a report from The Mental Health Commission of Canada - among Canadian workers ages 15 to 75, 28.4% reported high work-related stress. This rate has gone down slightly since 2005, but a substantial proportion of workers are highly stressed most of their working days. Issues like these can lead directly to incrementally higher incidences of workplace injuries, mental health issues, conflicts, substance abuse and other physical, social and emotional problems. Homewood’s EFAP and crisis management programs offer multilingual and fully accessible (24/7) service and, as the name suggests, the EFAP program is available to employees’ spouses/partners and dependents as well.
Short-term counselling focuses on a specific issue. Homewood offers this counselling in three modalities – telephone, online and in person – while providing approaches and content that address a full range of mental health issues including but not limited to family and relationship issues, trauma, depression, anger management, life transitions and personal issues.
