Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for general practice staff in South Western Sydney

SWSPHN is funding the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Best You by Benestar, to support the health and wellbeing of all general practice staff and their families.

There are two parts to the program:

MyCoach

MyCoach is a team of professional coaches, who are all experienced and qualified health professionals including psychologists, dietitians and social workers, to assist with everything from family and relationship issues, to challenges at work, dealing with grief, and improving exercise and nutrition. It is available to general practice staff and their immediate family members.

MyCoach includes six free and confidential personal coaching sessions which can be face-to-face, over the phone or via online chat.

To access the service, inform Benestar you are part of the South Western Sydney PHN (general practice) initiative. The service is strictly confidential with no information provided about you to SWSPHN.

“We know that 50 per cent of the population will experience mental ill-health at some point in their lifetime and we know that GPs aren’t immune to that.

“The program we have funded … will provide individual coaching with qualified clinicians like psychologists, dieticians, social workers and others, depending on your specific needs for your physical and mental health. They can help with a wide range of issues, covering the workplace, family and relationship, grief, improving exercise and nutrition and lots of other things in between.”
