We experience grief when we lose something or someone we care about.  During this time of a worldwide pandemic, we are all in the process of grieving, which is a natural emotional response to loss or a significant life change.  You may be grieving your sense of safety and routine, your connection with colleagues at the lab, lost or delayed work opportunities, holidays or other rituals, and connections with family and friends.  Perhaps you are also grieving for a friend or family member you have lost to the virus or another illness.  The process of grieving is uniquely individual and may include feelings such as shock, anger, sadness, depression, and even guilt. Each person experiences grief in a unique way and on their own timeline.  Let's talk about processing grief and moving forward. 

Please join us for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Annie Scheiner. The discussion group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive ways to build resilience and self-care skills.
