Maintaining one’s mental health can be difficult during these challenging times. As reported by Yahoo, 69% of workers say that the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is the most stressful time during their professional career. This includes events like 9/11 and the 2008 Great Recession.
In response to these new and growing challenges, first responders and others on the front lines have many resources at their disposal for managing mental health. Colorado-based first responder psychologist Dr. John Nicoletti has released a series of written guides for first responders dealing with the pandemic. Organized by different phases of pandemic response, these guides are available for download below.
Phase 1: Dealing with the Psychological Aspects of a Pandemic Event because of the Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Phase 2: Dealing with the Psychological Aspects of Being Quarantined because of the Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Phase 3: Dealing with the Loss of One of Your Own to the Coronavirus (COVID 19): Preparation and Response
Phase 4: Recoil, Recovery and Resiliency from COVID-19
