Recognizing trauma, practicing self-care as front-line workers

As front-line health care workers, and many others, continue to confront loss and trauma in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, self-care and resilience are more important than ever. The work each of us performs is important, but it is just as vital to remember that no one can take care of others if they don’t take care of themselves.

This is why is the USW hosted a special resilience and mental health training through the Tony Mazzocchi Center on June 9 and 11. We covered how to spot the signs of mental health struggles and trauma, both within oneself and others, as well as how to cope using healthy mechanisms.

We will be hosting another virtual session in the future, so please stay tuned for updates. And make sure to check out this short video preview of the course, featuring several USW members.
