Support Program for Nurses to Deal with Grief and Anxiety

“I was quickly overwhelmed with the weight of so many sick and unstable patients, not knowing if and when things would ever get back to ‘normal.’ Once again, Imagine created a program for me to turn to with people who understood how I feel; people who understood what I was facing on a daily basis at work.”

The nature of the program’s virtual environment breaks down geographic boundaries for those seeking support. Nurses from New Jersey and throughout the country are welcome to attend.

“New Jersey is no longer a hotspot for Covid-19, but many of the nurses here are processing what they went through and bracing for a possible resurgence,” Robinson said. “Meanwhile, there are nurses in other states in similar positions to where we were a few months ago. Sharing these stories, fears, and challenges at all different stages in a peer support model is proven to be an effective way to learn coping strategies.”
