Stress and Mental Health Resources

We recognize that stress happens. Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned and that can create a lot of stress. Stress impacts all aspects of our well-being, but especially our ability to cope and to thrive – our mental, emotional & spiritual health.

How Does Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Play a Role in Our Well-Being?

Recognizing your own and others emotions and responding appropriately makes a difference. It is the ability to cultivate positive thoughts, practice self-compassion, express emotions and consciously choose your responses; including, engaging in support systems to help cope. A strong sense of spirituality provides important benefits to health. It is linked with a sense of meaning and purpose which offers a sense of direction, shapes goals, influences behavior, and provides comfort during life’s challenges.

What Can You and Your Team Do?

Facilitate warm connections with others and encourage opportunities to express gratitude, self-compassion, mindfulness. Offer resources to support healthy coping skills, recovery and resiliency.

Conversations in Compassion:

Everything we know about trauma-informed care and resiliency training tells us that social and spiritual support are vital for everyone right now. Many patients are facing health challenges without family members at their side. And that weighs heavy on you, our caregivers, who continually go the extra mile to support them. But what are you doing to support your own social and spiritual needs? The Caregiver Engagement Team has partnered with Spiritual Care and Behavioral Health to present “Conversations in Compassion,” a 30-minute session offered each Friday, from 12:30-1 p.m., to support your social and mental well-being. Click here to join the Teams meeting.
