Basic intake questions are asked and the service is entirely confidential and anonymous.
The online TelusHealth/Lifeworks resource platform is another option for teachers to explore.
The CareNow Self-Directed is a parking lot for topical health content that is foundational and basic.One can move through some health modules and even receive asynchronous support via chat from a certified counsellor.
I tried it previously and it isn't specifically geared towards teachers so I found it frustrating. It was more geared towards office workers. I personally want advice that is specific to my situation, so it didn't work for me. Perhaps you are different. It is free, and there is a lot of quality foundaitonal health information there.
The CareNow Counsellor-Assisted is a bit different: one would move through health modules based on cognitive-behavioural therapy principles, whilst receiving asynchronous support from a certified counsellor.
This is all also accessible via an app.
