The National Advertising Benevolent Society of Canada (NABS) has expanded its services to include a series of videos and a monthly “Ask the Expert” chat to give members access to advice when and where they need it.
Available at NABS.org, the LifeSpeak On Demand series offers nine volumes available in English and French, covering topics such as physical and mental health, personal growth and relationships, as well as parenting and elder care.
“This is the answer for people reticent to phone our helpline, or who feel their problem is ‘too small,’” said Louise Berube, director of allocations and services for NABS, in a release. “It is 100% private and confidential and can be accessed by users on their own time and in their own space. Sometimes some reassuring advice is all it takes.”
Members can also submit their questions to a free monthly moderated “Ask the Expert” online chat called LifeSpeak 2.0.
The LifeSpeak On Demand content will be regularly updated to meet the interests and needs of the NABS community, according to the release. The project has been funded in part by the Ad Club of Toronto.
