As a result of the tragic shootings that occurred in the rural community of Portapique, Nova Scotia on Saturday, April 18, we would like to remind all dentists, their staff, and their families that no-cost support and counselling is available through CDSPI’s Member Assistance Program (MAP)* at 1.844.578.4040 or workhealthlife.com.
A crisis or traumatic event can trigger overwhelming emotional responses. Shepell has opened their national 24/7 crisis support line to offer professional emotional support to anyone in crisis. When calling, individuals can receive counselling support and/or referral to community resources.
