Peer Support

Sometimes unexpected events occur in the life of a nurse. In order to continue to meet the needs of our patients, we may need to seek extra help during difficult times. To address this need, Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center recently began developing a staff-driven Peer Support Program. Based on a proven national model, we provide tools to help our healthcare teams feel well-supported during and after trying times, so we can be in the best mindset for our patients.
