Fear and uncertainty are spreading across the country because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are seeing closures of schools, employees being sent home to work remotely and other large gatherings being cancelled. Reports are surfacing about cancellations of AA and NA meetings as well. Treatment programs are taking necessary precautions and cancelling on campus alumni events and support groups.
During these uncertain times alumni need your support more than ever. Because in-person events are not recommended at this time, we should focus on various types of virtual events to support alumni.
Here are 3 things you can do to support your alumni using virtual events:
- Set up a meetings once or twice a week using Zoom or another provider.
- Communicate to your alumni and let them know about these additional resources that are being offered.
- Put together a resource list of virtual peer support services that are available, encourage alumni to take advantage of these services.
Challenging times call for creative and proactive solutions. CaredFor will enable, free of charge for 90 days, any customers use of our native telehealth integration to better hold virtual alumni meetings. We are here to help.
