Some hills are easier to climb than others.

We all know somebody who has had a crisis. Where can you turn when that crisis hits home?

The Local 825 Member Assistance Program (MAP) was formed to help you navigate these various life events. MAP peers have successfully guided hundreds of members and their families to receiving care while protecting their anonymity.

Members Helping Members

Our peers are Local 825 members. They know the proper avenues to take, guiding you and your family to assistance. Through lived experience, training and education MAP peers provide support, resources and/or direction to the right area of experts.

With all the challenges we face, why let it impact your personal, family or work life?

The Local 825 MAP program works independently, as well as together with our Funds, to get the treatment or help needed while staying 100% confidential.
