What is Responder Resilience? (Part 2)

The latest episode of the LSU NCBRT Preparedness Podcast is Part Two of a conversation on responder resiliency during a crisis. What is responder resilience? How can emergency responders care for their mental health and well-being given the added pressures and uncertainties of COVID-19? Our guests include Dr. Carolyn Coarsey, president and co-founder of the Family Assistance Foundation, and NCBRT subject matter expert Roy Bethge.
