As healthcare workers, you have endured the unimaginable on a daily basis for the past three years. You or a colleague might have experience burnout, anxiety, depression, or another form of mental health distress at some point. You may already know what excess strain can do to your physical health, including the signs and symptoms. Are you aware of the signs and symptoms of mental health distress or how to properly treat it?

You work best and provide the best care when you yourself are healthy and taken care of, so it is important that you look after not only your physical health, but also your mental health. There are resources available to you 24/7 locally and virtually. Below are lists of these resources covering immediate crisis services, healthcare specific services, Colorado based services, reduced cost teletherapy, helpful coping mechanism apps, and resources offered in Spanish. Please take advantage of one or more of these resources and stay as healthy as you can during these unprecedented times.
