Morneau Shepell extends crisis line support to those affected by flooding in Ontario

Free crisis line open to support anyone impacted by the flooding in the National Capital Region and Central Ontario: 1.844.751.2133

OTTAWA, April 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Morneau Shepell has extended its 24/7 bilingual crisis support line to help anyone in need of emotional support as a result of the flooding in the National Capital Region and Central Ontario, which has forced numerous people to evacuate their homes. This follows the crisis line openings last week to provide support to those impacted by the flooding in Quebec and New Brunswick.

A crisis or traumatic event can trigger overwhelming emotional response. Members of communities impacted by these losses can call Morneau Shepell for crisis and trauma support at 1.844.751.2133. When calling the crisis line, individuals receive crisis counselling support and/or a referral to community resources.

The Company's employee assistance program is also available to existing clients through their unique, designated toll-free numbers or by visiting workhealthlife.com.
