Abstract:The COVID-19 public health crisis has highlighted the need for developing strategies for self-care and resilience amid adversity, trauma, tragedy, uncertainty, and stress. The Health SIG will sponsor a program exploring issues around supporting mental health and physical health for building resilience in various communities of practice. The proposed session will consist of four panelists who will present perspectives relevant to “supporting healthy minds and bodies” along with recommendations relevant to LIS educators and practitioners. The overall goal of this panel is to bring attention to the importance of supporting mental health and physical health while sharing practical suggestions for LIS educators and libraries. The proposed panel session will consist of four panel presentations. Each speaker(s) will have 15 minutes to present their topic or research. Tentative presentation topics may include COVID-19 resiliency tips, trauma-informed practices for the classroom, supporting mental and physical health during crises, suicide prevention, and mental health resources for individuals who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). At the end of the presentation, panelists will have an opportunity to interact with attendees to discuss strategies for developing resilience that may apply to a range of various communities such as students, educators, library practitioners, and community members. To help facilitate an interactive discussion format, attendees and panelists will engage together in a conversation about practices for addressing some of the most pressing issues and concerns highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, attendees will be asked to reflect and comment on how the presented ideas may be applicable to their respective personal and professional environments and attendees will further be invited to share any additional recommendations.
