Fall schedule: Drop-in groups for stress and coping available for BIPOC employees who are frontline and/or involved in the COVID response

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 and Tierra Lovelace, Mental Health Counselors from King County’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) team. The groups will be held every Wednesday from 12-1 p.m. Drop-in groups have been extended through November 24.

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.
