As the world faces unprecedented fear and uncertainty, the mental health community understands that we are stronger together. That’s why some of the nation’s most credible mental health organizations have teamed up to collaborate on a free resource hub to help people address their mental health needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, it is common for everyone to experience increased levels of distress and anxiety. Physicians and other frontline health care professionals are particularly vulnerable to negative mental health effects as they strive to balance the duty of caring for patients with concerns about their own well-being and that of their family and friends.

The Suicide Prevention Resource Center's resource page contains a section specifically for mental health professionals including tips on caring for clients during this public health crisis.

It’s important to note that we are not helpless in light of current news events. We can always choose our response. If you are struggling, here are some things you can do to take care of your mental health in the face of uncertainty. An article from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
As families continue to adapt to the traumatic circumstances playing out around us, we find ourselves grappling with fears and challenges that most of us have never experienced. In addition to the four webinars previously released, PEP will continue to offer free weekly webinars on relevant topics based on the evolving crisis. The webinars will be held on Thursdays at 11 am CST.
