What Benefits Are Available to Me?

Your Member and Family Assistance Program is here for you whenever you need it, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.

Within a confidential environment you can receive counselling for any challenge — whether it’s a first step in facing a possible addiction, depression, anxiety or managing day-to-day stress.

Homewood Health is a trusted company with years of experience delivering the best possible support for CPAs in Manitoba. Everyone is guaranteed confidentiality within the limits of the law. You won’t be identified to anybody — including your employer or CPA Manitoba.

People frequently use a Member and Family Assistance Program for personal challenges such as: relationship concerns, family or parenting issues, anxiety, depression, addictions, grief, coping with health issues, or work-related challenges.

Homewood Health will match you with a counsellor who suits your needs and provide you with short-term solutions. If you are identified as requiring additional, longer-term treatment or specialized support, counsellors will refer you to community-based resources and programs which suit your unique needs.
 How Does the Counselling Program Work?
Counselling services can be offered over the phone or online. If you have a preference for a counsellor gender or appointment time, they'll do their best to accommodate your preferences.

When you need to speak with someone, simply call Homewood Health — staff will ask you for some basic information (to establish your eligibility for this benefit) and help set up an initial appointment at a time that is convenient for you. An experienced counsellor will assess your concerns and help you develop practical solutions.
