Resilience training opportunities available for health care personnel

December 3, 2020

Building resilience among health care workers in Washington is critically important as the COVID pandemic continues. To support health care workers in this area, the Washington State Department of Health’s Behavioral Health Group is offering free trainings of PsySTART Responder (PsySTART-R) in December 2020 and January 2021. PsySTART-R is an evidence-based method for health care workers, first responders and health care systems to build resilience, anticipate and track stressors, and develop individualized coping plans during critical incidents. After training, individuals have access to a personal PsySTART account to track and graph their exposure to events that are more predictive of psychological risk and set up an individualized coping plan.

Additionally, organizational leads can access de-identified, aggregated information on how their staffs are doing and their risk levels. This information can be tracked to identify trends in real time, allowing the organization to modify levels of support and offer early intervention as needed. This provides situational awareness and builds resilience within the organization.

For more information on the training, dates, times and registration links, please view the training opportunities flyer. Questions can be emailed to
