Mental Health Resources
We understand that burnout is the leading cause of healthcare professionals leaving their workplaces. We offer resources that help begin your journey towards mental health.
Support others by supporting yourself.YOUR NEEDS ARE IMPORTANT
Millions of Americans live with mental health conditions. This number is rising each year: 65% of young Americans 18-34 have concerns about their mental health, and over 50% of the 51 million with a mental health issue are not getting the help they need.
Many also hesitate to seek help, fearful of judgement, shame, and backlash, even though mental health is just as important to overall well-being as physical health. To raise awareness and fight stigma, we’re sharing resources to provide support and educate members about care options.
