CLEVELAND — Healthcare workers have been the cornerstone of our community during the coronavirus outbreak. Thousands of people heading to the front lines, caring for anyone who comes into their facility.

But, who's caring for our healthcare workers?

The Center for Health Resilience, in partnership with the MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E., just launched a virtual support group for healthcare workers called Resilience Circles.

They're 20-60 minute Zoom sessions with up to 15 other healthcare workers plus a trained resilience coach. During the secured sessions, the coach will facilitate conversations allowing for workers to share their experiences and provide support to others.

According to MetroHealth, the sessions are a dedicated time to practice pausing and focus on being rather than doing and for workers to honor themselves and their own self care. It's also a chance to seek support from others based on similar experiences.

Resilience Circles are available weekdays and participants can join as many as they would like or need.
