“You’re Not Alone” workplace violence prevention series: support resources available

Apr. 27, 2023, 11:58 AM

Lori Rolando, MD, MPH, executive director, Vanderbilt Health and Wellness, shares a variety of ways to access support in the aftermath of workplace violence situations in the final installment of the ‘You’re Not Alone” video series.

“It’s natural to have a wide range of emotions that may change over time,” Rolando says.

People who hide their feelings associated with a workplace violence experience typically feel worse. Rolando encourages anyone dealing with this issue to “consider talking about your experience with someone you trust – a spiritual adviser, a family member, a peer, a co-worker, a friend, or the Employee Assistance Program.”

To learn more about prevention and for colleagues who have experienced workplace violence, please visit the Workplace Violence Prevention web site

to see the wide variety of support resources available.

As Rolando says, “You are not alone.”
