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.
Coping with the COVID-19 pandemic
As we adapt to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, it’s natural to feel stress, worry, and even anger. We've identified practical tools and sources of support that can help you strengthen your resilience during times of stress, so you can take care of yourself and those around you during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Visit the COVID-19: Resilient Wisconsin page for more information.
Sometimes, even first responders need help
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 through a free training and resource guide.
