Self-care Toolkit for King County First Responders and Essential Personnel

First Responders and Essential Personnel are employees who report to work during an emergency. These employees are often under extreme stress as they adapt their work in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

To support these employees in managing stress and caring for their own-well-being, Balanced You has developed a Self-care Toolkit for First Responders and Essential Personnel. In this toolkit, which is designed to be printed or read electronically, you will find resources on: 

  • Physical health 
  • Burnout and secondary traumatic stress 
  • Mental health resources and stress reduction techniques 
  • Tips for integrating well-being into the workday 

The toolkit can be downloaded at the Balanced You blog. Please help us in distributing this toolkit via email and print to King County’s First Responders and Essential Personnel.
