Better Together: COVID Conversations & Coping
About this event
Looking for a place to connect with others about the things you’ve experienced during Covid? Join us for non-clinical discussion groups about the impact the pandemic has had on our lives. The group will meet altogether at the beginning, then break out into three focus groups: (a) non-medical essential workers, (b) those who have intimate experiences with loss from COVID, and (c) a general group for discussion about anxiety and loss during COVID. Medical essential workers are welcome to attend and join groups (b) or (c).
Group A: Non-medical essential workers may include, but are not limited to, grocery store workers, COVID-19 contact tracers, restaurant workers, government employees, teachers, and support staff in medical facilities.
Group B: Those who have intimate experiences with loss from COVID may include: COVID long-haulers (“long Covid”), people who have lost family members to COVID, or have borne witness to Covid-related death and loss.
Group C: People who may not identify with groups 1 or 2 but still are seeking a support discussion group about their experience with COVID.
