Well-being

As we cannot give what we do not have, Associate health, spirituality and security are critical to providing compassionate care. During COVID-19 and the "new normal" that will exist thereafter, self-care – Body, Mind and Spirit – is essential whether in direct patient or resident care, in administration or someone whose work process has been abruptly changed.

This page brings together a carefully reviewed collection of wellness resources identified in collaboration with CHA-member mission and spiritual care leaders as well as insights from the Veteran's Administration and physician and clinician well-being experts to create a robust curated site for Catholic health care. If you have additional successful practices and insights, articles or more resources to share, please contact Dennis Gonzales, Ph.D., senior director, Mission Integration and Innovation or Carrie Meyer McGrath, M.Div., MAS, director, Mission Services.
