This insightful webinar will cover:
  • Grief and the impact of Covid
  • The impact of grief on workplaces, both healthcare and non-healthcare locations
  • Strategies for navigating various workplace scenarios
  • Examples of Employee Assistance Program support throughout the pandemic
  • Lessons from grief and mental health programs instituted by Adventist Healthcare

Who Should Attend?
Human Resource professionals, employees, mental health professionals, grief support volunteers and anyone looking to gain insight into providing more compassionate grief support to their community.
