You’ve called someone. What's next?

First, ensure that you are safe and comfortable wherever you are. If you are waiting for help to arrive, consider having someone stay with you. If someone cannot be there with you, contact someone you trust to comfort you over the phone. If you are at home, find your favourite stuffed animal, pet, or even a pillow to hug for comfort. If possible, have you or someone with you pack a small bag of essentials you would like with you at the hospital.

Make sure you have your health card available when needed.

You may be scared, and that’s ok. You have made the right choice to seek help. Remember to keep breathing. Help is coming.
