Employee and Family Assistance Program
Maritime Resident Doctors has partnered with Shepell-fgi to provide an Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) to all residents and your immediate family members*. The EFAP is a confidential and voluntary support service that can help you find solutions to all kinds of challenges you may be faced with, at no cost to you. As a resident, you have 24/7 access to self-guided resources, as well as support over the phone and online.

- Well-Being: Help with managing stress, depression, anxiety, anger, life transitions and crisis situations.
