Hokie Health: Connection is essential to mental and emotional well-being

Mental health is health. And we believe that when it comes to mental health, at Virginia Tech we are Better Together.

From: Hokie Wellness

Building meaningful connections in the workplace can be difficult, and loneliness is not an uncommon experience. Many employees are navigating what it means to innovatively foster connection as the workforce adapts to a new dynamic of both in-office and remote team members. Hokie Wellness will hold a new virtual resiliency workshop entitled “Key to Connection” for employees on Thursday, July 22, from 3-4 p.m. 

In the Key to Connection workshop, participants will learn how social connection is key to promoting resiliency, discuss different types of social support that we all need to thrive, and practice communication skills that help nurture secure relationships. This workshop will also explore various strategies and resources for increasing the sense of social support and decreasing loneliness in the workplace.

Registration is required and space is limited.
