Resources for Health Care Workers Coping with Stress from the KHA
The COVID-19 pandemic may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Public health actions, such as social distancing, can make people feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress and anxiety. However, these actions are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Coping with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about and your community stronger.
KHA will continue to share resources to help your team cope with this unprecedented time and take care of others who need help.
