A message from Governor Tony Evers to the people responding to the COVID-19 pandemic: It's OK to ask for help.
We can build a healthier and more resilient Wisconsin
Building resilience—the ability to adapt and recover from adversity—within ourselves, our relationships, and in our communities matters. When we find healthy ways to cope with trauma and toxic stress, especially during the tough times, we take a step closer to becoming more resilient. Resilient Wisconsin is here to help, by bringing together the latest mental and behavioral health self-care tools and trauma-informed practices.
Learning to cope during COVID-19
The people of Wisconsin are making important changes to take care of themselves, their loved ones, and their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not easy. But there are tools and resources that can help you manage some of the stress and strengthen your ability to bounce back from adversity. Tips for coping with staying safer at home.
Tips for people in challenging situations during the COVID-19 pandemic
- Frontline workers and their families
- Communities of color, older adults, and people living with illness and abuse
- Essential workers, temporarily unemployed, and parents
SPOTLIGHT: First responders
When helping others is your calling, asking for help can be difficult. We’re helping Wisconsin’s police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, emergency health care providers, and others learn how to recognize and deal with the effects of secondary trauma.
