After experiencing a critical incident or traumatic event, your ability to function normally in the workplace or at home may be affected. The impact of one of these incidents can take both a physical and mental toll on those involved, resulting in a strong emotional reaction that can last well after the event has occurred. This can be a normal reaction for someone involved in one of these situations; however, it is important to be able to recognize any signs or symptoms, and take proper action accordingly.

Depending on the type of person and the severity of the event, the level of impact on a person can differ. In any case, the most important thing you can do is find proper support after experiencing a critical event from family, friends or co-workers. The PASS CISM Team is there to offer you support as well help you process the event in a totally supportive and confidential manner.
