What are Virtual Support Groups?

 

 

EAS is here to help you. During these challenging times, EAS continues to provide services to all County of Riverside employees and their families. While we are not able to offer in-office visits due to current public health concerns, our dedicated staff continues to work remotely using HIPAA compliant technology to support our county employees by offering virtual appointments, phone consultations and more.

In response to the growing concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are launching a series of FREE Virtual Support Groups that you can access from a mobile device, tablet or personal computer. Support groups bring together people who are going through or have gone through similar experiences. They can offer a safe space for all to share their own personal experiences, feelings and coping strategies. You are not alone.

SOME BENEFITS OF SUPPORT GROUPS:

  • - Realizing you are not alone
  • - Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
  • - Improving skills to cope with challenges
  • - Reducing distress, depression, and anxiety
  • - Gaining a sense of control or hope
  • - Helping others

Registering for a Virtual Support Group is easy to do. From the list below, determine which group is a good fit for you. Next, click on the group name to access the Calendar of Events. Once on the calendar, locate the day of the group you have chosen to attend, click on the group title to open the registration page. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at (888)829-8999 or you email your questions to us at eas@rivco.org. An administrative team member will contact you within 24 hours (business days) to assist you. We are here to help.
