The NLMA is proud to participate with the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) in providing a Wellness Support Line, which has been specifically tailored for physicians, learners and their immediate families to help them manage the stressors they’re facing.

 

The support line provides short-term, solution focused mental health support and counselling, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You do not need to be a CMA member to access the Wellnbess Support Line.

 

The service is offered through Morneau Shepell and all calls are handled by a dedicated team of fully certified counsellorwith a minimum of Masters level training, specifically trained to address the unique needs and challenges faced by medical learners and physicians. The team is capable of providing immediate crisis counselling, conducting risk assessments and matching callers to appropriate service(s).

 

The Wellness Support Line replaces the NLMA's inConfidence Employee and Family Assistance Program (also offered through Morneau Shepell). For NLMA members who may be actively using the inConfidence program, the services and counselling will continue to be available until the individualized program is complete.
