Professional Support Program

Offers confidential help to members and their families who are experiencing problems – whether they are personal or professional, financial or psychological, psychiatric or addiction problems.

The Professional Support Program (PSP) offers assistance to those struggling with personal issues such as anxiety, stress, burnout, family and relationship problems, psychiatric illness and substance use disorders. We also promote health and wellness through workshops, online resources and literature specific to physician health and wellness.
