Virtual sessions highlight staff and faculty support services

The challenges people are met with in their home lives undoubtedly impact their work lives, and York University is working to help with its Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP). The confidential and voluntary support service, run by Telus Health, helps York staff, faculty and their dependents deal with issues related to their off-the-job lives.

This winter, Telus Health is offering virtual EFAP information and orientation sessions to York University employees and managers. Whether help is needed with child or elder care, dealing with a personal medical condition or achieving work-life balance, these sessions will explain how EFAP can help address these challenges and more with its full range of support services.

All staff, faculty and their dependents can access EFAP toll-free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for immediate, confidential help. There is also an online portal with 24-7 access and resources on many topics, including personal well-being and health, relationship issues, healthy living, financial counselling, caregiver resources and Indigenous support.

Below are the virtual session dates and YU Learn registration links for employee and manager sessions. The same information is being offered on multiple dates, so register for the session that best fits your schedule. If you are planning to attend, sign up as soon as possible, as space is limited.
