The Farm Family Support Centre is managed as a Member Assistance Program (MAP) through Morneau Shepell.
The MAP is a voluntary, confidential, short-term counselling and advisory service that connects farmers and their immediate family members to a network of dedicated professionals who are available to provide assistance 24 hours a day.
This program is available at no cost for up to 3 hours per case. If you require more specialized or longer-term support, your MAP will help you select an appropriate specialist or community service that can provide assistance.
