Steps to Take

If you are involved in a critical incident or impactful life events there are several steps you can take.  

Recognize the Signs & Symptoms

An incident can have a powerful impact on you physically. Pay special attention to your physical and emotional health.  

Find Someone You Trust & Talk About It

Peer support team members are available to listen and offer support. We also have alternative options, if needed. Isolation is not a good idea and may make symptoms worse. 

Be aware that for the next several days, you may find yourself more irritable and emotional. 

This is normal. These are stress reactions that may occur days or weeks after the event.  

Symptoms of a trauma reaction should begin to subside over time.  

If you do not notice improvement after some time has passed, or the symptoms are getting worse, please reach out or seek emotional support.
