CPA Assist provides confidential 24/7 counselling to Alberta CPAs, candidates, and their immediate families.
When is it okay to seek help?
It’s normal to feel hesitant about seeking support. Even if you are unsure, taking early steps to prevent symptoms from turning into bigger problems is important in managing your health.
Common issues we can help with:
- Career dissatisfaction
- Diet and health
- Family or parenting
- Financial crisis
- Stress management
- Time management
You can also call CPA Assist for advice on how to support someone who is experiencing difficult times, to learn ways to stay mentally healthy, or to get referrals to long-term resources if needed.
