You’re here to help others, we’re here to help you.
As our communities face COVID-19, we are experiencing drastic changes to everyday life, both personally and professionally – and these changes are especially difficult for helpers and other frontline and essential workers. Oregon Helpers Wellness Initiative is dedicated to providing critical support to Oregon communities and those workers we depend on most.
Our virtual peer support meetings are free, confidential and open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, and more.
We offer these spaces to focus on self-care, because finding a healthy work-life balance is a daily challenge. We hope to de-stigmatize help-seeking for stress, anxiety, and depression, encourage resource sharing and resilience, and quell compassion fatigue and burnout.
We invite you to participate in these spaces at your level of comfort.
We at Lines for Life are grateful for the work you do to keep our communities safe and well, and we want to thank you by offering space for you to recharge and stay connected to the passion which drew you to your field.
Benefits of participating:
- Stress reduction
- Evidence based self-care strategies
- Work-life balance strategies
- Resource sharing
- Community with those who care for others professionally
Wellness Affinity Groups
Our Wellness Affinity Groups meet online to connect participants from similar backgrounds or occupational fields. They are hosted by coaches who guide participants through a strengths-based skills curriculum and sharing community resources as needed.
