An EFAP is a professional and confidential service which is offered by an organization to its employees and their families to support them in quickly and efficiently resolving a vast range of problems that may impact work performance, wellness and behaviour.

Our commitment to exceptional clinical care is paramount.

Homewood Human Solutions™ offers the expertise of more PhD-level psychologists than any other EFAP provider and all clinical staff are registered with their respective professional associations.

Each of our service providers recognizes the potential complexity of assisting employees with issues that can reflect troubles from their personal life, the workplace, or a combination of both.
