As the world begins turning a corner on the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are championing the new normal. However, for many, it’s likely that the new normal seems more new, and less normal, than many will be comfortable with. The lingering effects of isolation, health anxieties and pandemic fatigue can easily follow people back into the re-imagined school and work, and social environment, impacting physical and mental wellness. Reopening society will be a process rather than an event. We will discuss these uncertainties, the need for advance planning and preparedness, and self-care in the anticipation of greater behavioral health service needs.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide a look at the impact of COVID from an individual and collective behavioral health lens, and discuss the lingering effects of isolation, health anxiety, and pandemic fatigue as people move back to the re-imagined work, school, and social environment, and the potential impact on physical and mental wellness.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Describe the social and emotional impact of the pandemic
  • List short and long term effects of COVID, as well as the experience of Burnout, Vicarious Traumatic Stress, and Compassion Fatigue
  • List two approaches to prepare for future behavioral health needs, and to address worker self care.
Intended Audience: 

Professionals working in the behavioral health, health, and related fields.
