Mind Over Matter: Strategies to Combat the Coronavirus Blues, A Resource Guide   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the About: "[This is a] catalog of links to information and graphics aimed at college and university campus communities. The goal of this guide is to provide ideas for students, faculty, staff and administrators to help manage the challenges of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] during school, work and daily life. [...] [We are a] joint COVID-19 Schools Task Force, made up of staff from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) offices in Kansas City, Missouri. The focus of the task force since its inception in July 2020, has been to provide information to colleges and universities that will improve individual preparedness and general well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. [...] In the late fall of 2020, we noticed an increasing trend in mental health fatigue across the country associated with the pandemic, including at colleges and universities. So we aimed to collect a variety of strategies to help combat that fatigue and promote general wellness that can be used right now during the pandemic, and carried forward into the future. [...] The information [in this guide] is themed into 6 categories: [1] 'Top Guns' (Tools for Faculty and Leadership); [2] 'Why These Feelings?' (How to Manage a Gamut of Emotions); [3] 'Takin' a Break' (Fun Things to Do During the Pandemic); [4] 'Lullaby and Goodnight' (Tips for Better ZZZs); [5] 'Stomping Stress' (Surviving and Thriving thru Adversity); [and 6] 'Getting your Groove Back' (Winning @ Wellness)[.]"
