The holiday season can be a great time of year, but it can also be a stressful time for some. UBC Faculty and Staff (and your eligible dependants) can access to the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) to speak with a counsellor if you are having a difficult time this holiday season.
UBC’s EFAP provider Shepell offers confidential short-term counselling on many issues. You can call Shepell if you need to talk with someone about:
- Relationship problems
- Parenting and caregiver concerns
- Work-related issues
- Stress and anxiety
- Alcohol and drug dependencies
- Financial advisory services
- Nutritional counseling
Call the Shepell Care Access Centre at 1-800-387-4765 to chat with a counsellor, or visit their website at https://www.workhealthlife.com.
Please visit the HR EFAP page to learn more about the services provided by the UBC EFAP provider, enrolment information, and details on the eligibility of your dependants.
