STRESS

STRESS - we all deal with it on a daily basis.  Stress is simply the body's response to change.  This can be either positive (eustress) or negative (distress).  So how do we ensure that we are handling the distress that comes across our path so that it does not lead to mental health concerns?

Here are some awesome resources that you can access to help support yourself, a family or colleague in effectively dealing with stress and maintaining good mental health. 

A great place to start is to contact our Employee and Family Assistance Program. This program can provide counselling as well as a number of different resources to support.  The EFAP has a great workplace stress package that you as an employee can receive free of charge simply by calling (1-800-387-4765)
