Peer support can help
Research shows that trained peer supporters can help colleagues deal with difficult emotions that impact their wellbeing and work performance.
We partner with hospitals and health systems to provide technical assistance and training so they can establish a peer support program tailored to their organizations’ needs.
We also connect individual clinician and staff members in need of help with trained peer volunteers through a free, confidential statewide virtual support network.
Finally, for workers in the long-term care sector, we are expanding access to a new group-based support model.
