Coping with Tragedy in the Middle East

The death, kidnapping, destruction, and terror due to recent events in Israel, Gaza, and the impact on the entire the Middle East region fills us with sadness. Many of our VUMC colleagues have family and friends in the region. Work/Life Connections-EAP gives advice on helping one's coworkers who are hurting from these terrible incidents.

Grieving: Never Forgotten

On August 30, National Grief Awareness Day recognizes that healing from loss isn’t a prescribed course or path. We may eventually move forward but never feel “closure”. When a loved one dies, the void they leave affects everyone differently. Work/Life Connections-EAP offers comfort to VUMC faculty & staff experiencing grief.
