White Paper Series 2 – Employee Well-being: PTSD, Mental Health, and Workplace Chaplaincy
“Resilience over Resignation”
Due to uncertainty, risk, and mental and physical anguish, growing numbers of people have maintained an increased level of anxiety and are feeling the effects of long-term exposure to stress and trauma, or post-traumatic stress.
Post-traumatic stress is a normal response to experiencing a traumatic or stressful event. Most people will show at least a few signs or symptoms as their body responds, but when the symptoms begin to disrupt everyday life, thought patterns, actions, and reactions, it becomes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Having positive and proactive strategies in place, such as the support from a Chaplain Care Team, to combat stress, crises, and uncertainty will help create more resilient and thriving individuals, families, workplaces, and communities—now and in the future.
