The festive season can be a time for celebration, but for some, we know it can be a difficult time.
If you notice that someone you care about is not going so well during the festive season, it’s important to check in and remind them of the services we have available at Monash Health.
We care about your mental health and wellbeing and are committed to supporting you throughout the holidays with a wide range of resources.

The Peer Support Program offers a group of trained peers that are available to listen and support you in times of need on a range of health and wellbeing concerns.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a professional counselling service that offers confidential, short-term support for a variety of work-related and personal problems that may be affecting you at work or at home. This service is available to employees, immediate family members and volunteers for counselling and coaching support. There are eight programs providing assistance and support, and five specialist helplines.
