THE PROBLEM

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers faced elevated rates of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicide.

400

 physicians die by suicide each year.

2x

physicians and nurses die by suicide at 2x the rate of the general population.

200%

burnout has been shown to cause a 200% increase risk in medical errors.

62%

of nurses and 42% of doctors are feeling burned out while battling COVID-19.

It’s critical that we support the mental health of those on the front line of healthcare.

We ask that health care organizations develop real strategies to address the root cause of burnout.
