FPA Wellbeing is a free, confidential support program for FPA members and affiliates.
It’s been a particularly challenging time for our profession, and more than ever, we encourage you to prioritise your wellbeing.
The person who can have the biggest impact on your health and wellbeing is…well, you! But, with so much information available, it’s hard to know what is reliable or where to begin.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Benestar® to bring you a comprehensive health and wellbeing program to help you feel great and be your best you!
- Personal, confidential support sessions with qualified counsellors or psychologists via phone, Live Chat or face-to-face.
- Access to a library of health and wellbeing resources available on your mobile via an app, or from your computer or tablet via the website.
To access, simply login to the Member Centre for more details.

Until at least Friday 30 July, services will be delivered via phone or video in SA, VIC and NSW, or postponed at your request.
