COVID-19 Support Group Launches Today
“Who would’ve thought that one year ago I was sick as a dog with COVID and now I can be skiing 25 kilometers dressed as an infection!” said Muffy Ritz, who took part in Galena Lodge’s Spring Loppet Sunday dressed as a very blobby, wind-resistance infection alongside Kate Ellis who dressed as a sumo wrestler.

A series of virtual interactive support groups for Idahoans wanting to learn how to cope with the challenges and stress of a year of COVID-19 will kick off today.

The virtual support groups will launch at 12:30 p.m. today—Tuesday, March 23 and will last between 30 minutes and an hour. They will run every other Tuesday through June 29. The next session, for instance is April 6.

Registration is required.

The Stronger Together: Resilience Strategies Learned from One Year of COVID-19 virtual support group is hosted by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare COVID-19 Crisis Community Resource Specialists. Its co-host is Empower Idaho.

The idea is to connect with other Idahoans, process a year of the pandemic, gather ideas for building resilience, exchange stories and have fun.

“This is a chance for Idahoans to connect and maybe even make new friends while exchanging ideas and learning from each other after a year of COVID,” said Alacia Handy, who works for the Division of Behavioral Health and with the team who is coordinating the series. “We can learn from reflecting upon the experiences of the past year and hopefully gain strength from each other in this series.”
