NEW: Dates Available for RISE Group Support for Grief & Loss

March represents an anniversary. One year ago, Denver Health’s Incident Command was launched, we entered lockdown here in Colorado, and our lives both personally and professionally were drastically altered. And across this year, many of us have been navigating various forms of loss, including, but not limited to the death of loved ones and colleagues, the “normalcy” of the rhythm of our lives, dreams and expectations, connection to family and friends. RISE Group Support can provide an emotionally safe space to discuss the ways in which we are impacted. All Denver Health personnel (clinical and nonclinical, patient-facing and non-patient facing, trainees and employees, contractors and volunteers) are welcome and group content is confidential. Please register in advance. Links are provided below. Alternatively, you may email dhrise@dhha.org with a request to be registered.
