Carson Tahoe Health is asking for help in sponsoring “Your Caregivers’ Calm.”

Carson Tahoe Health staff has worked to be a resource during the pandemic and now you can help give back.

From now through the holidays, you’ll be able to donate and support local caregivers’ mental well-being through the Calm app – which offers a suite of services, including meditations, as well as sleep and stress management.

“Our caregiver’s commitment to the health and well-being of our community means they are here for you and your family during good times and bad,” Alan Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Carson Tahoe Health, said in a news release. “And that will never change. However, we need to care for our family, so they can continue to care for you and yours.”

CTH works with resources, such as its own Behavior Health Services and the Northern Regional Behavioral Health Policy Board, to support the emotional health and well-being of its employees, community members, area schools, and more. Healthcare workers may be considered experts in healthy coping strategies, but just like everyone else, they need some assistance at times.

The Calm app will help caregivers care for themselves, their families, and ensure they’re coming to work well-rested, with less stress and anxiety. With hundreds of hours of original audio content available in six languages, Calm supports users in more than 190 countries. As a non-profit health system, CTH invests every dollar made back into the community’s health and well-being, including its CTH family.

“In tough financial times, with many important health priorities we need to fund, we want to ensure the health of our caregivers does not get sidelined,” Garrett says. “We hope our amazing community members who value their CTH nurses, facilities team, patient food services team, and all the others consider sponsoring their Calm this holiday season.”

For $60, you can support two Carson Tahoe caregivers’ Calm apps, bringing them a little peace of mind. Donate at

Carson Tahoe Health has set out to raise enough to fund Calm’s services free-of-charge for all CTH caregivers for two years, which makes its goal $58,000.

Thanks to the planned donation of Betty Kopfhammer, CTH has a $14,000 head start from the Betty & Gene Kopfhammer Legacy Fund housed at the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada.
