New Physician & Family Assistance Program

We are pleased to launch the NLMA’s new Physician & Family Assistance Program for members and their families.

As previously reported, the Association has partnered with the Doctors of BC Physician Health Program to provide a comprehensive suite of support services to NLMA members.

The Physician & Family Assistance Program is delivered by a dedicated team of physicians and clinicians specialized in supporting physicians in their health. The Program includes a 24/7, confidential helpline, short-term counselling, and referrals to specialized coaches and therapists. As well, NLMA members can avail of one-to-one peer support and peer support groups.

Families of NLMA members can also avail of the program, including spouses, domestic partners, and children under the age of 25 who live with the NLMA member or attend school full time while living away from the NLMA member.
