Resources for Health Care Workers

Health care personnel and first responders are providing care during unprecedented times. We are at a point in the Mid-South when our resources are stretched very thin. Conditions will continue to worsen due to a lack of ER, hospital and ICU beds, and shortages of caregivers. 

Stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, burnout, damaged relationships, and post-traumatic stress disorder or secondary traumatic stress, are new and overwhelming experiences for many clinicians. Increased workplace hardships and exposure to traumatic events can result in negative psychological impact and significant moral dilemmas.

The resources on this page are for you – whether you are a clinician, first responder, student, or volunteer working to lighten the load of our frontline caregivers.
