Here 4 U: Peer Support

Young adults experienced a year unlike any other in 2020. And as we begin a new year, the pandemic continues to disrupt their daily lives – making them feel emotionally drained and overwhelmed.

We want them to know they’re not alone, especially leading up to Valentine’s Day – a day that celebrates love and connection. However, young adults may not be feeling all that connected to their loved ones right now. We want them to know it’s okay if they feel this way.

To help them navigate through this challenging time, CVS Health is inviting young adults aged 18-24 to join a free Here 4 U online peer support session between February 8-12, 2021. Young adults are welcome to invite one of their friends or loved ones between the ages of 18-24 to join, too.

And because our African-American young adults are experiencing an even greater set of challenges, given the systemic racism and injustice that continues to threaten our country, we’re offering some of these conversations exclusively for them.

We want to reach other vulnerable populations, too, and will provide a few sessions specifically for young adults from the LGBTQ+ community, including a special session on February 11, 2pm – 3pm ET, featuring an expert from The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth.

If you or someone you know is between 18 and 24 years old, you can register for a session by choosing one of the times below. Spots are available on a first come, first served basis so please register as soon as possible if you’re interested.

Here 4 U is part of CVS Health’s broader Time for Care initiative. It encourages young adults aged 18-24 to seek the mental health support they need in order to understand and cope with depression, stress, anxiety, isolation, and suicidal ideation.

Please join one of these open and honest conversations that will provide a safe space to talk about how you’re feeling during these challenging times.  Please visit this link to view all the sessions scheduled and to register.

Lastly, when asked while registering how you first heard about the Here 4 U program, please be sure to mention “HOSA-Future Health Professionals.”

Thanks to CVS Health for providing this opportunity!
