Toronto, ON – February 28, 2019 - Lifemark Health Group is pleased to be the service provider for the Nurses’ Health Program (NHP), a new program that focuses on early identification and referral for treatment for nurses with mental health and/or substance use disorders.

NHP embraces the philosophy that nurses experiencing these issues should have an opportunity for education, treatment, and recovery. It offers a proven approach to the assessment and treatment of mental health and/or substance use disorders. The new bilingual program offers nurses information on how to access resources, a dedicated case manager, comprehensive assessment, an individualized support and treatment plan, and monitoring.

“Lifemark is pleased to have been involved in this program since its inception. From collaborative development and implementation to administration, the program helps Ontario nurses access the treatment and support they need to ensure safe nursing,” said Rene Deschamps, Vice President of Lifemark Workplace Health & Wellness. “Lifemark has been working with professional regulatory bodies for the past 10 years, and this program is especially meaningful as it recognizes and addresses a unique need for these health care professionals.”
