The ACH COVID-19 Support Discussions group meetings concluded on May 28th. ACH launched these groups as a temporary opportunity for ACH member support during the turbulent days of the pandemic. We were pleased to have so many members, both long term and new, join us for this. Unique and lasting connections were made and during this time of uncertainty, we were glad that ACH, along with dedicated volunteer support, was able to provide this outlet for support and sharing.
"What was most valuable about the support discussions?"
Participant Feedback: "Meeting with other like-minded (e.g., ACH aware, ACH trained) caring, self-aware clinicians for a more personal check-in and sharing of experiences and thoughts at this most unusual time of COVID. I attend many zoom meetings each week, and this is the only one that provides a place for us as 'people'/ 'individuals'--e.g., it's relational. This is something very special that ACH can provide."
Although ACH will no longer formally host these particular groups, we are assessing future opportunities to best enable virtual connections among members.
A special thanks to Brenda Lepisto, ACH Faculty, for graciously facilitating the groups.
