Wellness Wednesday Invite for 20 May

Dear Shipmates,

Thank you again for your participation in our weekly "Wellness Wednesday."  This forum provides a space where we can share with each other how this pandemic has been affecting our lives.  This week’s discussion will continue the thread from Medical Monday, “Recognizing and Coping with Stress.”

If you have CVR loaded on your computer or mobile device, click this link.  You may choose to watch but remain anonymous during the CVR call by choosing not to activate the video camera function.

Old school is cool – join by telephone:  (571) 388-3904, Conference ID 288 018 057#.  Please ensure your phone is muted. 

Share questions or comments within CVR via chat; text them to 202-689-5197; or email them to wellnesswednesday@uscg.mil.

Chaplain Alexander from Base NCR, and LCDR Ritter, the Coast Guard’s psychiatrist, will host the call today, Wednesday, 20 May, from 1500-1600 EST.   CAPT Carrie Oyster, Senior Environmental Health Officer, will be online to answer questions on protocols and procedures for keeping the workplace safe.

This call is a reminder to be kind to others and ourselves.  Our friends, colleagues, parents and children are all experiencing unexpected changes. 

When we are good to others, we are best to ourselves.

Always,

RADM Dana Thomas
