Connect & Recharge Groups
To help support well-being for our colleagues affected by additional stressors in the face of COVID-19, we provided stress check-in opportunities to members of the Stanford Medicine community through "Connect & Recharge" groups from mid-March to mid-June of 2020.
Connect & Recharge groups were designed to help in the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic in response to an anticipated local surge of cases. It was also intended to help support people through the initial quarantine period and through the adjustment to sheltering in place. Given limited demand at present, we have put the program on hold. We hope that those of you who joined us for groups found it useful.
We encourage you to consider the following ongoing programs if you need additional support:
- Physician Resource Network (PRN) Support provides our physicians and trainees with confidential, independent, legally-protected collegial support and resources for life’s inevitable clinical, professional and personal challenges.
- Faculty Staff Help Center provides counseling services, facilitated conversations, workshops, discussion groups, and more to benefits-eligible faculty and staff throughout the University and hospital systems.
- WellConnect provides confidential mental health referral and consultation for residents and fellows.
- BeWell’s Guide to Self-Care provides resources and links to help us take care of ourselves
