Lifeworks Crisis Response Resources & Emergency Contact Reminder

We are saddened and devastated by the tragic events at the Highland Park 4th of July Parade, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families. During this difficult time, please know that LifeWorks is available to provide support and assistance. A crisis or traumatic event can trigger overwhelming emotional responses, often undermining healthy communities and social relationships at home and at work.

Remember that the immediate and confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services are accessible 24/7/365. LifeWorks also has several toolkits that may be helpful to you and your family such as the Traumatic Event Support Toolkit, and the Coping With Crisis Toolkit. There is also a separate Crisis Support Line available 24/7 at 1-877-757-7587 for anyone in the community in need of these services. 

Toolkits are easily accessible upon logging in to the LifeWorks site or calling their toll free number using the following information:
