Your well-being during these very challenging times is of the utmost importance. These are unprecedented times and the uncertainty around us, whether at work, at home or in the world, makes it extremely difficult to manage our anxiety and stress levels. To that end, the college’s Employee Assistance Program has designed a series of three webinars to support your wellbeing as you navigate the road ahead. Below is information on the first webinar in the series. This webinar is accessible at any time and is free.
