Enhance your mental health with these supports
Staff Wellness leads a number of programs, resources and services, to help promote, support, and sustain the health and wellness of faculty and staff at UCalgary.
Lifeworks is UCalgary's new Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP) provider for benefit-eligible employees. Services provided by LifeWorks, including short-term professional counselling, are confidential. You and your eligible dependents have access to the EFAP at no cost to you.
Call Lifeworks toll-free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to book appointments or access immediate help.
Any employees who currently have a case in progress with Homewood Health will continue to receive support from that provider until the sessions are completed. For any future assistance, reach out to LifeWorks at the toll-free phone number.
The Postdoctoral Office enriches and elevates postdoctoral training at the University of Calgary and supports postdoctoral scholars in their pursuit of future career success.
The Postdoctoral Association provides a collective voice for the issues of particular relevance and interest to postdoctoral associates, a liaison between postdoctoral associates and the administration of the university, and works with the postdoctoral office to promote and develop effective training and career counselling of postdoctoral associates.
