[CONNECT] Changes in how we access mental and physical health care.

May 28, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Connect PACTNOW

Join FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic for supportive social connection.  All groups are trans and queer led.

 

This week’s topic:

Changes in how we access mental and physical health care.

Many of us are unfamiliar with telemedicine and communicating with our health care providers by video or through text-based platforms.  We’ll have an interactive discussion about what kinds of changes many providers have implemented, how we can feel more comfortable engaging with our providers in this new way, and how we can feel safer and more comfortable seeking (and getting) the care we need and want.

About CONNECT Coffee, Tea and WE chat support:

CONNECT groups will meet three times each week with a different focus for each session. Thursdays from 6-7:30pm will be a chat-focused, supportive time to share what’s on your mind, and have some focused discussion on a specific topic.

Coffee, Tea and WE is a gently moderated time that allows people to share what’s going on in their lives, connect with others, and feel support during these tough times.

Groups offer opportunities to connect with new and old friends, reduce isolation and loneliness, and have some fun in the process!
