This is a difficult time for many in our community. I want to remind you that Employee and Family Assistance Program resources are available for staff members who wish to access them. 

Please see this Crisis Portal that has been made available by our Employee and Family Assistance Program, ComPsych. The Crisis Portal is open to all and includes helpful information about coping after a traumatic event and coping emotionally after a disaster, including tips about talking to children about traumatic events. The portal is available in several languages and you can adjust the language by clicking on the Canadian flag on the top right side of the page and selecting your preferred language.
