NAMI Frontline Wellness
NAMI Frontline Wellness was developed to support the needs of health care and public safety professionals who have been struggling with the added stress of the COVID-19 pandemic. These individuals serve in stressful fields, managing complex cases of illness and injury, working in frequently dangerous and traumatic situations and coping with the various effects of shiftwork. The pandemic added yet another layer of stress and truly highlighted the need for support and resources.
In conjunction with our partners, this initiative provides information and rapid-access resources for frontline professionals in health care and public safety who are struggling with the effects of stress and trauma. Free, confidential sources of professional and peer support, information on managing stress and building resilience and peer stories are currently available, and more will be added.
Next steps in this program are underway as NAMI continues to accrue resources and work with our partners to address the mental wellness of frontline professionals.
