Mental and Emotional Support for Healthcare Providers/Caregivers

Are you needing help with stress, moral distress, or grief? Looking for assistance on how to deal with your emotions? Or are you seeking an outlet to visit with other colleagues on the stress and toll this pandemic has taken?

​SDAHO is collaborating with 605Strong to create a state-wide healthcare support group.  Lutheran Social Services (LSS), in partnership with 605Strong, will facilitate discussion among interested SD healthcare staff. LSS will provide trained counselors and/or psychologists to lead the discussion and give an outlet for participants to connect with other colleagues to share, learn, and hopefully help one another during these challenging times.

Upcoming opportunities facilitated by LSS include:

Youth Grief and Loss

Join members of the 605 Strong Team on Monday, January 11th from 6-7pm to learn about grief and loss in children and how to help them cope with grief and loss. Children are often overlooked when there is a loss of a loved one, but a child’s first experience with grief can be devastating. Behavior and mental health issues may occur afterwards. During a pandemic, a child may also be more apt to know someone who dies from illness.
