Parent Wellness: Online Wellness Groups


This amazing resource is open to all Oregonians and is geared towards self care as we balance work and family life during the pandemic. See below for more details and if this opportunity might be of interest to you.


"As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.


Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.


We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout."
