Leadership Check-Up Series: What Can We Learn from Crisis? Leadership, Post-Traumatic Growth and COVID-19

The National Council’s Behavioral Health Training Institute and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) hosted the webinar Leadership Check-Up Series: Developing Your Resiliency as a Public Health Professional, a special webinar offering to support public health professionals working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. National behavioral health and resilience experts provided six sessions of conversation, reflection, and nourishment to help attendees continue the vital work of responding to COVID-19 while better supporting their families, friends, coworkers, and communities.
