  • Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC (1888PressRelease) March 25, 2020 - REBOOT is hosting COVID-19 support groups for First Responders, Small Business Owners, Affected Employees, College Students, Teachers, and Parents of Homeschooled Children. Sessions will begin on Monday, March 30, 2020 and each group will have 2 sessions available weekly for the duration of the crisis and the aftermath in order to provide structured and consistent support. Each group is 60 minutes long and will have no more than 6 members and one facilitator to allow time and space for each participant to share and respond to others.

    People worldwide are feeling stress and anxiety during this difficult time. Laurie Dierstein, Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Small Business Owner of REBOOT: Mind, Body Health understands the emotional toll first hand. Laurie believes “We function at our best when we operate as a community, supporting each other through validating feelings, offering advice, and forming connections. Isolation can be a trigger or precipitant for a number of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, and suicidality - even if such concerns were not daily challenges prior to this crisis. We are here to offer a place for sharing how our emotions and moods have been impacted by the sudden changes and unknowns taking place. We are here to extend our knowledge and learn together how to navigate through this time. We are here to stay connected with you, our community." The virtual support groups at REBOOT are voluntary open groups, meaning anyone feeling stress or anxiety related to COVID-19 is welcome to join at any time during the life of the group.

    REBOOT: Mind, Body, Health is a wellness center in Virginia Beach made up of an integrative care team of providers who believe in connecting with the whole person to achieve positive change. REBOOT’s goal is to educate, guide, and support patients in building confidence and control while developing a healthy lifestyle.
