Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We Are Here For You

We all know that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve and we can also see the continued uncertainty and feelings of anxiety in our communities, which is both natural and to be expected.  To help create calm in the midst of uncertainty which is best done in providing trusted information for our fellow neighbors, we have compiled a list of the most credible and valuable information for specific audiences who would like guidance on coping with the emotional toll of COVID-19.

The best recommendation is to stay grounded in up-to-date factual information from the  CDC Coronavirus webpage and the PA Department of Health webpage and follow their guidelines for proactive, preventative self- and other-care measures.  Please review the following sources addressing how to navigate the uncertainty and manage the natural anxieties associated COVID-19:


Self-Care Videos:

If you’re feeling good some days and not so good others, you are not alone - and this video series is for you. We are all figuring out what comes next in this COVID-19 pandemic. Taking care of ourselves and each other and holding on to hope is still the order of the day. Mike Diller, PsyD, Director of WellSpan Health’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) introduces the series of these short videos. Be encouraged! We are here for you. We are all in this together. 

As we traverse the unknown terrain of the COVID-19 epidemic, we must care for ourselves in order to care for our loved ones. Tom Crotty, PhD, Psychologist at WellSpan Philhaven, shares four M’s of mental health that are especially true in this difficult and stressful time.
