Wellness Groups

Multiple wellness groups are conducted with participants from California State University, Long Beach, Jordan High School, HOAG Health Center, and the Paramount Community Center. The first four sessions have been live in-person group meetings. The last four sessions have used a HIPAA compliant version Zoom video conferencing to connect the participants. In an effort to comply with the CA Stay At Home order, all future sessions are scheduled to take place online using Zoom video conferencing. Each session is led by PMHNP nurse practitioner students that are licensed, registered nurses and supervised by board certified psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners. These groups run for eight weeks each semester. Sign up is required to participate in these groups.
