Member Assistance Program

"Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step."

-Mariska Hargitay


What is MAP?

MAP is a partnership program like an employee assistance program that is designed for churches, non-profits, and organizations. A MAP connects participants to tailored health resources that can address their personal needs, such as emotional/mental health, marital or family issues, wellness programs and more.

The MAP Mission

MAP offers a unique wellness experience for churches, non-profits, and organizations by providing access to professional mental health and wellness counseling. We believe these resources will equip and empower them to meet the growing need for mental health and wellness in their communities.

Membership Fees

We provide 3 tiers of yearly membership* for your organization starting at $500. The membership fees cover the administration and coordination costs associated with implementing the MAP services. Additional tiers are available ranging from $1500-$2500 per year and include choice of training sessions and a seminar by Dr. Don Gilbert.

Tier 1: $500 - Covers administrative and coordination costs for the year

Tier 2: $1500 - Includes your choice of 2 one-hour trainings.

Tier 3: $2500 - Includes your choice of 2 one-hour trainings and a 4-5 hour seminar by Dr. Don Gilbert.

*These membership fees do not cover the cost of counseling services. All trainings and seminars are tailored to the needs of your organization. Additional trainings can be added on at any time.

Considerations when creating your MAP

  • Establish a contact person from your organization to coordinate and facilitate the MAP.
  • Determine how you want to allocate your budget. You can designate a set number of sessions or a dollar amount available per client.
  • Counseling services can be billed through insurance prior to utilizing MAP monies.
  • All treatment services are HIPAA compliant and confidential.
  • New Life carries liability insurance so there is no need for the church to carry additional insurance.
