Member Assistance Program

Your mental health is important. As your association, we want to do our part to address the struggles many members are facing when it comes to mental health and emotional wellness. We want you to feel comfortable reaching out to professionals who can help. We don’t want you to worry about associated costs or support limits. And we want to make it easy for you.

OAVT Pending, RVT and RVTr members now have access to Dialogue. This digital platform will connect you with licensed healthcare professionals and experts who can deliver virtual care from a single app. The MAP and Mental Health+ programs offer you confidential and complimentary access to support. Having a MAP ensures our members have a trusted place to turn to for expert help and support. Available for download on your iOS or Android mobile devices, Dialogue will also be accessible on the web via Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge Chromium browsers.
