BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) employees who are front-line and/or involved in the COVID response are invited to join hour-long group drop-in sessions to process stress, connect with others, and share coping strategies. These groups are voluntary for employees.
The groups are hosted on Zoom and facilitated by Mary Norman, a Mental Health Counselor from King County’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) team. The groups will be held every Wednesday from 12-1 p.m. starting May 5, 2021, and ending June 23, 2021.
How to join
Participants are invited attend as many of the weekly sessions as they would like. Attendees and session content are considered private information and are not to be shared.
