The death of a student can have a rippling effect on the entire CNC community. As we grieve, please know the College offers a variety of services available to students and employees.

On June 7, 2018, CNC’s wellness coach, RCMP Victim Services and a critical incident counsellor has been on campus in Room 1-723 to offer support services to both students and employees. At 1 p.m., an Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP) counsellor will be in Room 1-723 to provide drop-in support services for any CNC employee who needs it.

Ongoing support will be available to employees and students in Room 1-723 on June 8, 2018. That same day the critical incident counsellor will be conducting a debrief session for CNC employees at 3:00 pm in 1-723. If faculty have a scheduling conflict, such as a class, at that time, they may cancel class if they choose in order to attend the debrief session.

Students can contact Dana Hansen, Wellness Coach and Student Services at hansend6@cnc.bc.ca for more information or to arrange a private appointment.

For employees, Homewood Health is available 24/7 at 1-800-663-1142 www.homewoodhealth.com
