Personal relationships are rewarding, but they are not without stress and, sometimes, conflict. If you are a staff member in need of advice when it comes to managing your relationships, or if you are experiencing a family dispute that could benefit from mediation services, you are encouraged to call your Employee and Family Assistance Program provider, Homewood Health on 780-428-7587.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, visit the links below for assistance. If you are in immediate danger or in need of medical assistance, please call 911.
