Community Trauma Response Team
The goal of the Corner Brook/Bay of Islands Community Trauma Response Team is to help people and communities cope with tragedies and their effects. Our team includes representatives from different Community and Government Agencies who work together to respond to the needs of community members who have experienced a traumatic event.
Have you experienced a traumatic event?
A traumatic event is any event that causes you to experience unusually strong emotional reactions that might get in the way of you ability to return to daily activities.
Some examples include:
• An actual or perceived threat to your life.
• Severe physical harm or injury.
• Witnessing a death or serious injury.
• Accidentally causing harm to another.
It is very normal for people to have aftershocks when they have gone through a horrible event.
If you have ever experienced a traumatic event, community support and services can be identified and accessed by calling Mental Health & Addiction Services. For Corner Brook/Bay of Islands, contact 634-4506. For other areas, see the listing below.
