The Professional Support Program (PSP) offers assistance to those struggling with personal or professional issues, such as anxiety, stress, burnout, family and relationship problems, psychiatric illness and substance use disorders.
The PSP provides a safe, confidential way for members to seek guidance, support and resources.
The program addresses the barriers that may prevent struggling individuals from getting the help they need, such as:
- Lack of time
- Fear of licensure issues or loss of privileges
- Lack of access to treatment
- Inability to find or use peers for confidential support and coaching
In addition, the PSP promotes health and wellness initiatives through workshops, online resources and literature specific to physician health and wellness.
The PSP and its counsellors have no affiliation with the licensing and regulatory bodies or related university training programs of the three professions they serve.
