Monday Morning Support Group for COVID-19 Frontline Workers
We all know these are unprecedented times, and the Cohen Veterans Network is expanding our services to meet the new and urgent demands brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning June 8th, we will be offering new 8-week virtual psychoeducational support groups.

Eligibility: These interactive groups will be open to all frontline healthcare providers and first responders, and their adult family members in New York City. This includes NYPD, FDNY, and Paramedics as well as frontline healthcare providers at NYC hospitals, and healthcare facilities.

Goals and Format: Through these 8-week support groups we aim to provide resources, techniques, and a welcoming virtual space to support frontline workers at the center of the COVID-19 pandemic. In each weekly 60 minute session we will focus on wellness and self-care topics that can help you to understand and manage the unique experiences you may be having right now. The groups will serve as a place to come together with others who may be sharing similar experiences to increase emotional support and decrease feelings of isolation and alienation that many are experiencing these days. To maximize the benefit to all group members, we encourage participants to attend all 8 sessions in order. We also understand that these difficult times may pose unique scheduling challenges, and group members are welcomed to re-register at the end of the initial 8 week period to review any modules they may have missed.
You can choose to attend one or more of the following webinars.
