Tuesday, October 26, 2021
It is understood your job is stressful under normal circumstances, however the current environment has increased this stress. NJPN cares about you and created “The Confab” to be a safe space to discuss issues and strategies that can assist in your overall health and well-being.
All are welcome no matter your pathway to recovery.

Virtual Sessions on Zoom
Similar to an in person meeting, the goals of these virtual sessions are to discuss universal recovery topics that will guide interactive solution-based discussions and assist in the promotion of self-care, health and wellness.
These supportive virtual sessions are designed for NJ Peers currently working or volunteering in multiple supportive settings. It is our hope to create an inclusive space that embraces and honors recovery allies and peers from all multiple pathways of recovery.
We are hopeful that all involved will benefit from the connection of the supportive community that the “The Confab” will create. A confab is an informal private conversation or discussion.
Please be respectful of all participants just as you would in any other meeting or recovery space—we're all in this together!
Audio can be muted when you are not contributing to the conversation. Text chat option is also available.
If you wish to remain anonymous you may do so by calling in verses using video capabilities.
Attending from a laptop maximizes the Zoom operability but you can also join via a smart phone. Video is optional.
