​​To make an appointment with the Unit employees can either call or send an e-mail requesting an appointment. Upon contacting the Unit, the employee is given an appointment within the support service to understand better their needs. Should additional support be required, the employee is referred to the counselling service for the necessary support. All services and interventions are provided through a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including social workers, psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists. The service is offered at no​ cost to the employee.​
