REMINDER: STAFF SUPPORT - SUPPORT LINE AND STAFF MENTAL HEALTH & WELLNESS RESOURCES

To alleviate some of the immense stress on our staff and medical staff who are engaged in PHC’s COVID-19 response, Providence has several support resources in place for staff to sustain us going forward. 

To support your mental health and wellness, a support line is available for staff and volunteers to speak with a colleague who is trained to provide Psychological First Aid (this is not a crisis line). Call 604.806.9925 or local 69925 – leave your name, number and a time for one of the trained volunteers to call you back. This line is also available to physicians and contracted services (IPS, Sodexo and Crothall). 

Your confidentiality is important and details of the conversation will not be shared; the only information shared will be to OH&S if services are required beyond what is offered so they can ensure you have the appropriate and ongoing assistance you need.

If you would like some additional support for yourself or your team please contact Sandy Coughlin, Director of Occupational Health & Safety.
