COVID-19 Associate Resources

Support for Team Members

We are in this together, and we have several stress management resources available to all team members:

  • SilverCloud: a free, online mental wellness tool with programs that focus on stress, resilience, and insomnia and sleep issues. Find SilverCloud FAQ and helpful tools here.
  • Relaxation Videos: 360 Degrees of Relaxation & Soothe Yourself Guided Relaxation
  • Mindfulness Exercises: From now until the end of the year, it's important to FOCUS on what really matters – especially you. Taking time to focus on mindfulness will help reduce stress and improve our daily outcomes. Click here for mindfulness exercise videos.
  • Allen Hospital's Employee Assistance Program is teaming up with Black Hawk-Grundy Mental Health Center, the Child Protection Center and UnityPoint Clinic Psychiatry to add extra counselors to be available to provide real-time assistance to any team member in the Waterloo region who may need additional emotional support. EAP sessions are available to employees and members of their household. Learn more.

As we work through this challenging, ever-evolving time to balance competing demands – caring for our patients, our families, our teammates – remember to take care of yourself while you're taking care of others.
