VOA|ReST: Resilience Strength Time


VOA|ReST is an online peer support service providing the benefits of a confidential, interactive process to individuals who are struggling with loneliness, stress and fatigue during these extraordinary times. Each VOA|ReST group – led by up to two facilitators– follows processes designed to discharge distress and enable rediscovery of positive commitments to work and lifestyle goals. It is one way of alleviating exposure to moral distress experienced by frontline workers in long-term care, health care, social services and the general public during the current global health crisis. Without a chance to address these sometimes-debilitating feelings, people are at risk for moral injury, which over time may deepen into the destruction of integrity and character. Moral distress is characterized by emotions such as shame, guilt, humiliation, fury, despair, self-loathing, sorrow and a loss of trust. Sessions are limited to 10 or less participants. Video use, with your camera, is required for participation in VOA|ReST sessions. If you are using a mobile device/phone, go to your web browser, and log onto HeyPeers! to access your scheduled meeting.
