Online Series: Mental Health Self-Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic for Health Care Workers and First Responders
 

 

Health care workers (HCWs) and first responders are among the most vulnerable populations to experience stress-related psychological difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic. A wide range of mental health consequences of COVID-related stress include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, burnout at work and suicide. Several approaches are available to mitigate, as well as prevent such disorders. These include self-help approaches such as mindfulness, yoga, and sleep hygiene.

 

As part of the New England Mental Health Technical Transfer Center (MHTTC), we have developed a series of interactive webinars, specifically focused on HCWs and first responders in the New England region. The following topics included in this series are: resilience, mindfulness, yoga, meditation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, sleep hygiene, positivity, and substance abuse in the context of COVID-related stress among HCWs.
