Wellness Series

This series provides information, guided practice, tools, and tips to maintain wellness. Sessions will be led by faculty in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience and special guests. All sessions run from 12:00 - 12:45pm.

Mindful Mondays invites you to care for and honor yourself. We will offer guided self-compassion and meditation practices focused on increasing resilience to challenges we are currently experiencing. Practices will be intertwined with discussions on portable and effective stress management strategies.

Well-Being Wednesdays will focus on pathways to healing and understanding racism, inequities and injustice.  This session is an open dialogue and provides team members an opportunity to check in with themselves and others in a safe space and provides support for working through these challenging times.

Family Fridays will address wellness through the experiences of families with a focus on child development, parent concerns, and partner relationships. Topics include the impact of the pandemic on children and families, adjustment to virtual learning, talking to children about social unrest, and more. Please join us to hear from our internal experts, connect with colleagues, and share experiences.
