In the wake of the suicides of two New York City healthcare providers, there is growing concern regarding the mental health of medical workers who are on the front lines fighting the coronavirus pandemic. They are facing unprecedented stress, difficult workloads, and high death counts due to COVID-19.
According to the JAMA Health Forum, “Many factors are contributing to the psychological distress of nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, aides, and other health care workers providing direct frontline care to patients with COVID-19.” The article also states, “Much of the needed mental health care may be provided through telehealth services, including video visits with mental health professionals, mobile apps, online resources, and virtual peer support.”
We have made the decision to waive all co-pays, deductibles, and other fees associated with our behavioral health and substance use disorder services for healthcare workers. Our app provides private, stigma-free access to treatment for depression, anxiety, addiction, and other mental health issues. Our telehealth treatment program makes it possible to get immediate assistance from licensed professionals, all on a smart phone, tablet, or computer.
From all of us at PursueCare, thank you to the healthcare providers putting their health and lives at risk while caring for others. Stay safe.
Nick Mercadante, CEO
