Support After Traumatic Event
It has been a difficult weekend for all of us within the Saskatchewan Health Authority and for many others across our province, country and beyond. The unexpected and tragic loss of life that occurred as a result of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash is hard to comprehend.
As an employee of the Saskatchewan Health Authority you have access to our Employee and Family Assistance Program by phoning 1-844-336-3136. A number of support resources are also attached below. Remember that the immediate and confidential EFAP services are accessible 24/7/365. The website at workhealthlife.com also features additional information and tips on coping with traumatic events.
