As we continue social distancing, the Action Team recognizes that many of us are experiencing stress during this time of pandemic. We are excited to offer a live ZOOM webinar: Stress in Uncertain Times, hosted by Abby DiPasquale of Maine Municipal Employees Health Trust. The webinar will be held Tuesday, May 12, at 2:00 p.m. You can register for it HERE. Social distancing because of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is the best thing we can do right now to decrease the risk of spreading the virus in our communities. But social distancing and self-isolation can be really stressful. The CDC says the following people may respond more strongly to the stress of a crisis such as this: • Older people and people with chronic diseases that put them at higher risk • Children and teens • People who are helping with the response to COVID-19, like doctors and other health care providers or first responders • People who have mental health conditions, including substance abuse Even if you don’t fall into one of those categories, being cooped up in your house isn’t always easy. Join the ZOOM webinar, Stress in Uncertain Times,” to learn recommendations for lowering your stress during this time of uncertainty.
