Coping with Tragedy

The pain of tragedy is that it is always unexpected and can be challenging for people of all ages. Exposure to a tragic event can bring up a lot of different feelings which can come in waves and change over time; fear, anger, anxiety, exhaustion, detachment, or numbness, to name just a few. 

The resources below are available to help guide and support parents, caregivers, children and youth through this difficult experience.


The Mental Health & Addictions program is still open and here for you during COVID-19 pandemic.
