How a Traumatic Event Can Affect You

The effects of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash in Saskatchewan are far-reaching and deeply felt by many.  When events like this transpire, communities are in need of support and help.  A traumatic event is any situation that causes a person to experience unusually strong emotional reactions that have the potential to interfere with their ability to function normally at work or at home.  Coping with and overcoming these reactions can sometimes seem overwhelming.

Our partner in providing excellent Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) services, Morneau Shepell, has a number of resources on which to draw.  Immediate and confidential EFAP services are accessible 24/7/365 and it is important to know that there is always someone you can talk to.  We invite and encourage all of our clients to reach out to your PEO Canada Benefits team to learn more and to be connected with a wide variety of service providers who can help you, your family, friends, and community take care after tragic events take place.

If  you are not currently part of the PEO Canada family and want to learn more about our employer services please reach out to us.

Morneau Shepell has also launched a national crisis support line that is available to anyone in need of emotional support. The crisis line can be reached at: 1.844.751.2133.

It is important to know that there is always someone you can talk to.
