Following the tragic Ukrainian passenger jet crash in Iran - which appears to have claimed the lives of many Canadians, including many from Alberta - our thoughts are with those who have lost family members and loved ones.
We have resources and services available to help you or someone you know who may be affected. We’re here to help.
In tough times we can be more vulnerable to stress, worry, anxiety and depression. It’s important to take care of ourselves. Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.
Traumatic or unsettling events, most of the time unexpected, can have a significant impact on your mental and physical health. Remember, it’s normal to feel stress. Everyone who goes through a traumatic event is affected in some way. Sometimes these stresses may not appear for weeks or months following an event. It is important to watch for warning signs.
