Our Healing Connections



"Our Healing Connections" began as a project for nurses by nurses who were determined to help their peers deal with the stress and burnout endemic to the field, and which the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated.

Nancy Farish, Jeanell Webb-Jones, and Jane Muir began working together on "Room to Reflect" a program which encourages healthcare workers to give themselves permission to address their stress through the use of mobile "resiliency toolkits", a box of physical and digital tools designed to encourage care for mental health and wellness.

We invite you to benefit not only from experiencing the offerings in this collection but also by contributing to them. Do you have an original song, meditation, poem, or prose piece that would be a good addition? If so, please submit it by doing the following:
