Community Resilience During COVID-19 Wednesday June 16 2021 11:00am - 12:00pm (CST)
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on physical and mental health. A whole-person approach takes into account a person’s environment, psychosocial aspects, health-related behaviors as well as a person’s strengths (or resilience). Due to social distancing, we employed a virtual community outreach using a web-based application MyStrengths+MyHealth (MSMH). This research builds on previous work in which we adopted a whole-person health approach, focusing on individual and community resilience as well as challenges and needs.
