Mental Health Services while working from home

This post is a reminder that UVic’s counseling services for staff are still active while most are working from home.

UVic’s Family Assistance Program is available at no cost to 951 employees and dependents. All services have transitioned to being available either online or over the phone.  All of their phone/online counselors are just as qualified as those who see clients in person. Currently, they are not experiencing longer wait times than usual!
