Resiliency Resources from MUSC

Healthcare workers across MUSC who are responding to and caring for COVID-19 patients within our community are at increased risk of stress related difficulties. Developing strategies to bolster resilience in order to continue to respond effectively is essential for the health and well-being of our healthcare team. Several resources have been compiled to assist in taking care of yourself and those around you during these challenging times. More information about these resources can be found here (PDF).
