COVID Recovery Iowa Offers Counseling For Employees And Employers To Navigate Through COVID-19 Concerns

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, and our workplace is no exception. For nearly every employee and employer, their work life has been changed. COVID Recovery Iowa is here to help business owners and their staff navigate through this difficult time through dedicated support sessions in the coming months. They will be actively working with people on issues such as: concerns about being exposed to the virus at work; having to take time off if you don’t feel well; the pressures of taking care of family members during work hours; the constantly changing rules and guidelines for masks, vaccines and returning to the workplace, uncertainty about the stability of employment and more. “Whether you’re a teacher, a nurse,  a small business owner or a police officer, the effects of COVID-19 are causing stress at work,” says Emergency Mental Health Specialist for the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS), Karen Hyatt. “Our counselors can conduct a seminar at your workplace, virtually or in person, to help provide coping skills and personal support for workers at all levels.” More information is available by contacting Hyatt at 515-281-3128 or by email at khyatt@dhs.state.ia.us.
