Wellness Support Groups

Wellness Support Groups are 8-week standing groups facilitated by OITE wellness advisors. They are meant to offer a supportive space for trainees who have similar needs, experiences, and/or identities.

Connecting in a Time of Loneliness Support Group

This group is for post-doctoral trainees and graduate students who are single, living alone, far away from many support systems, and/or partnered but feeling alone and struggling.  This group will provide an opportunity to share experiences, increase coping skills and feel more connected. This is a 6-week support group that will be held on Wednesdays at 2pm beginning November 3rd. Register.

Lab Transitions Support Group

Transitioning labs presents us with many challenges. This group supports trainees as they consider transitioning labs, look for new labs, and are integrating into new labs. Trainees practice skills to promote general well-being, how to be with the strong emotions that come with leaving a lab and finding a new lab. This groups accepts trainees on a rolling basis.
