The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on first responders’ mental and physical health. Throughout the disaster response phase, regional recovery leaders, and dedicated interagency partners worked to create a coordination forum to discuss both challenges, solutions, and resources. This three-part COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience Speaker Series explores opportunities to raise awareness about resources that can help reduce burnout, promote mental health, and encourage trauma-informed care strategies among the health and emergency management workforce in response to COVID-19.
