New EFAP Provider

March 18, 2019

Effective March 1, 2019, Red River College is pleased to launch a new Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP).

The EFAP is a free, confidential and anonymous program which offers short-term counselling and support related to a wide variety of issues including relationship issues, depression and anxiety, stress management, grief and bereavement, work and family balance, parenting, gambling, substance use and work-related problems. It can also support in areas of childcare and eldercare, career planning, financial and legal consultation. Red River College’s EFAP is independently administered by our chosen service provider – Homewood Health.

The EFAP is also available to your family members which includes spouses, partners and children. Family members can independently access the program.

The EFAP is completely confidential. Homewood Health will not release any personal information to Red River College. Accessing the EFAP is easy – just call the 24-hour toll-free access number at 1-800-663-1142. You can also access support and information from www.HomeWeb.ca.

Red River College is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of not only our employees but their family members. The transition to Homewood Health EFAP is a demonstration that we have adjusted providers to better serve the needs of our employees. We encourage you to consider this program now or in the future, should the need arise. Please access the following EFAP documents for more information and feel free to share with your family members:
