In Missouri we utilize the myStrength platform https://mystrength.com/. My organization contracts with myStrength on behalf of our members. The platform is always available to our members' staff and consumers. We expanded our contract during the pandemic to offer access to law enforcement and first responders (informed through our state's CIT councils), as well as hospital and primary care providers (informed through the state's hospital, rural health, and primary care associations).

We are actively working on strategies here in Pennsylvania-we are working on virtual morning meditation/exercise, regular updates to all staff (currently written but will be going to video), virtual chats with remote staff, etc. I think also sharing positive updates keeps morale up. Collaborative outreach this week saved a guy who is real high risk. Sharing stories like this make staff feel that their efforts have meaning. We have also all been participating in the Light the Night Initiative for essential personnel-there is a FB group devoted to this-I believe it is National. Of course, we too are always looking for new ideas.
