Member’s Assistance Program

Member's Assistance Program (MAP) Delivered Through Inkblot  

PAS recognizes that members need additional support options for their mental health. PAS sponsors the Members’ Assistance Program (MAP) delivered through Inkblot; a voluntary confidential program for eligible PAS Members in Saskatchewan.

MAP is completely confidential, voluntary, and accessible at your own convenience.

What is MAP?

Through MAP, you and each of your eligible dependents have access to 3 hours of individual counselling and 3 hours of couples counselling per program year. Access is on-line with the ability to select from a short-list of best-matched counsellors based on your unique needs and preferences. Following your allotted hours, you can continue with the same counsellor shifting to sessions reimbursable through your paramedical coverage or paid privately. Advisory services are also available including legal, financial, health, career, and life transitions. Appointments are booked directly on-line with your selected counsellor, at your convenience. Counselling sessions are delivered through Inkblot’s secure and encrypted platform, by video or phone.

How Do I Access MAP?

MAP is a benefit of the PAS Full Membership and CSHP/PAS Joint Membership options. As an eligible member you should have received a welcome email from Inkblot with an invitation to complete your registration. If you did not receive this email, please reach out to member services by emailing or calling 306-359-7277.
