Greenshield Counselling Services

When it comes to wellness, it’s just as important to take care of your mental health as it is to take care of your physical health. That’s why ARTA has partnered with Greenshield Health (formerly Inkblot), to give members access to quality counselling that can support them in all areas of their lives. Whether you’re going through a crisis, not feeling yourself, or just need someone to talk to, all ARTA members with Extended Health Care coverage can utilize this online service to receive help during life’s tough moments.

ARTA’s Extended Health Care coverage covers up to five hours of counselling per member/dependant, per year (benefit year is November 1st – October 31st). In addition, members can access five hours of career, life, or health coaching, as well as financial or legal support, should they need it. The five hours of counselling resets on November 1st.

After signing up, you’ll be matched with a counsellor based on your specific needs. Each counsellor has a minimum of a master’s degree and 5 years of experience in the field. But if your counsellor isn’t a good fit for you, you can choose a new one after your first session.
