COVID-19: Legal and Policy Strategies to Promote Mental Health [video]   [open html - 0B]

From the Overview: "The response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic involves massive disruptions to daily life in the United States. Large-scale illness and loss of life are producing widespread grief. Social distancing and stay at home orders may lead to social isolation and loneliness, on one hand, and rapidly reconfigured family roles and responsibilities on the other. Economic disruption generates anxiety and challenges in meeting basic needs. Public health and health care workers, as well as other essential workers, strive to assist their communities in navigating these challenges, as well as navigating the challenges themselves. What programs, policies, and laws are available to help those seeking to promote skills in self-care, stress management, coping, and resilience in their own workplaces and the broader community? This webinar provides an overview of the mental health implications of COVID-19 and the role of laws and policies in the initial stages of the mental health response." The duration of the video is 1 hour and 51 seconds.
