VAMC offering Mindfulness Practice via phone

Beckley VA Medical Center has suspended in-person classes and non-emergent appointments for The Whole Health Program, however, veterans will be able to call in for a half-hour long mindfulness practice session, led by Social Worker Jamie Crosier, MSW, LCSW of the Greenbrier VA Clinic. Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment. Veterans who are interested can call in to 1-800-767-1750 with code 66778# at 10 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Veterans are asked to call between 9:55 and 10:05 a.m.; no calls will be taken after as practice will begin. To track participants, Beckley VAMC requests that a veteran call before or after the session to sign in. Call 304-255-2121, ext. 3180, 3126, or 3125.
