The COVID-19 Grief Support Group, facilitated by Atrium Health Hospice & Palliative Care Patient & Family Service group facilitators, provides emotional support for teammates personally affected by COVID-19 and as caregivers. This group provides the opportunity to share feelings in a safe environment, normalize the personal grief process and scheduled time for self-care. The goal of the group is to affirm the need for personal connection.
All teammates are welcome to register for this group.
Date/Time: Tuesdays from 5-6 p.m. and Thursdays from 7-8 a.m.
Registration: Send registration request email to HospiceEvents@AtriumHealth.org by Monday at 12 p.m. the week of the group meeting. Once registered, teammates will receive a meeting planner to join the group.

The EAP program is designed to help you and your family emotionally cope with all types of issues – marital conflicts, financial problems, job stress, legal issues and more. The Atrium Health EAP offers free counseling for teammates and family members by calling 1-800-384-1097.
All teammates, regardless of benefit eligibility, and their family members can use up to six sessions with a licensed counselor, at no charge. If more than six sessions are needed, counselors will provide external referrals that can be used for a fee.
In response to COVID-19, the EAP program will not count any sessions used during this crisis against the annual limit. EAP is available to help teammates however they can.
Additionally, EAP offers MyStress Tools at no cost to teammates.
Part of taking care of yourself, your mental health and managing your stress is learning how to participate in self-care. Self-care is any activity we deliberately do to take care of your mental, emotional and physical health.
