Public health workers are responding to all the critical needs arising during this pandemic and are integral to the global response to COVID-19. In community clinics, neighborhoods, and homes around the world, health workers are taking on significant personal risk and, too often, working without adequate equipment to ensure they receive the care they need. The current crisis is demonstrating the essential, tireless, innovative, and often undervalued role of health workers. This presentation will offer valuable resources and tools, including Psychological First Aid, to these individuals, who often work in marginalized and underserved communities with little support or protection.
