Challenging work conditions, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath put millions of health workers at risk for severe stress, burnout, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and suicidal behavior. Mental health stigma and fear of the impact of required treatment disclosure on licensure and credentialing inhibit health workers from getting the help they need. However, more is now known about suicide risk and prevention, and practical mental health support and risk reduction strategies are available.

In this webinar hosted by Schwartz Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Beth Lown,  Judy Davidson, DNP, RN, MCCM, FAAN, nurse scientist at University of California San Diego Health and research scientist for the UC San Diego School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry, Jennifer Mensik Kennedy, PhD, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, president of American Nurses Association, and Christine Yu Moutier, MD, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will discuss the current status of health worker mental health, what we know about suicide risk factors, how to approach a colleague at risk, and practical strategies, programs and toolkits you can implement in your organization.
