RPCVs Need a Safe Supportive Place to Work Through Their Readjustment Concerns

When Peace Corps called for a global PCV evacuation, RPCV Health Crusade launched an EPCV Support Program. We decided that the immediate need is to provide support options for the evacuated PCVs (EPCVs). A single country evacuation is hard enough. But, evacuation during a health pandemic and into a global financial recession exponentially increased to the challenge. Some EPCVs managed a fairly smooth transition. Unfortunately, some EPCVs had a much harder time with their readjustment.

The RPCV-HC EPCV Support Program launched within a weeks of the evacuation. We gathered support resources. We exEPCV support program need depicted by a person with confusing symbols all aroundpanded the RPCV-HC Resource Library with specific health-related Peace Corps information. And, we looked for a way to offer EPCV peer support sessions.

We wanted to provide a safe supportive space where the EPCVs can work through their concerns, confusion, and challenges. EPCVs needed a space with people who understand the unique nuances of services and its challenges. RPCVs already understand the lingo. We know the environment.

Please identify the US State, District or Territory that you will be participating from. Since therapists are licensed by state, they cannot technically operate across state lines but our connection of trained therapists may be able to offer therapy services depending on your state or territory. Your response also helps us to potentially group the sessions by location and/or look for region-specific resources.
A few sentences/words would be really helpful!
