HAVEN Take 5 Self Care Program
Finding Inner Peace Amidst COVID: Take 5
HAVEN is dedicated to the health and wellness of all healthcare professionals. Our mission and vision is to promote and support the health and wellbeing of our Connecticut health professionals. Never in our lifetimes has the wellness of our community been under such siege. We see stress and uncertainty in every area. Never have we felt so helpless.
Guided Imagery and Meditation audios are ways to reduce anxiety, promote better sleep, and alleviate stress.
We all need to take some quiet time for ourselves. These meditations and affirmations were selected with healthcare professionals in mind. They are all under five minutes. They can be listened to with complete anonymity and to whatever extent works for you. Using these research-based skills has shown to lower stress, promote better sleep, and enable positive energy and calm which are desperately needed during these turbulent times.
These are a gift from HAVEN to you, our healthcare community. They will be available for unlimited use for one year from May 11, 2020.

From the American Nurses' Association - Mental Health Resources for Nurses Coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic
Coping mentally and emotionally with the COVID-19 pandemic is difficult for everyone, but even more so for nurses. Please know that you are not alone-you are providing care to a grateful nation, and the American Nurses Association honors your service.
Below, you will find two categories of resources to assist nurses and other healthcare providers with mental health resources. The first category is for dealing with stress, fear, and anxiety associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic. You may also want to check with your employer, university, state or specialty nurse association, or your state board of nursing about their resources including any employee assistance program (EAP) or peer assistance/counseling programs. The second category contains national lifelines and healthlines.
If your stress, anxiety, or fear causes you to think about suicide or be in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.
