Support Mental Health Needs of Health Care Workers Providing Frontline COVID-19 Care

As the public health crisis surrounding the coronavirus outbreak continues, doctors, nurses and others on the frontlines are putting their health at risk every day, while managing the physical and emotional needs of gravely ill patients.

In more highly affected areas, health care systems are often overwhelmed by a surge in care demand while simultaneously experiencing staffing shortages. Health care workers supporting infected patients often experience concern about the adequacy of their personal protective equipment, and the health and safety of their own families.

The mental health of frontline health care providers is the COVID-19 crisis that too few are talking about.
