Spoke to @hasanminhaj a few months ago about the structural barriers to accessing mental health care + how COVID-19 fast-tracked the expansion of telehealth.
Protecting our children's health is not a political football. #WearAMask
(2/2) Veterans shouldn't go through it alone. Get help here: veteranscrisisline.net
(1/2) “What did it mean that I went there, what did it mean that I risked my life, what does it mean that I saw other people lose their life?” Many veterans are wrestling with these questions and struggling with their mental health. usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
There was not a single ICU bed available in Alabama yesterday. Our country is still in crisis. Get vaccinated now. nytimes.com/2021/08/19/us/…
“Teams would be more than willing to pay for multiple MRIs but not put a single dollar toward an appointment with a mental health professional." Glad to see the @WNBA taking steps to up their game around mental health. si.com/wnba/2021/08/1…
With all the devastation going on in the world right now, there is no better time to recognize our humanitarian workers for all they do to protect our most vulnerable. #WorldHumanitarianDay #TheHumanRace
Centering psychosocial rehabilitation and people w/ lived experience is always the right idea. northcarolinahealthnews.org/2021/08/18/fir…
Reminder that @naomiosaka doesn't owe the press anything and should continue prioritizing her mental health, even if that means setting boundaries, taking breaks, etc. washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/08…
Nurses are integral to the healthcare system and yet stigma around mental health + fear of jeopardizing employment pervades the industry. Yes, laws may be getting passed to address this, but it's also about fundamentally changing the culture. vox.com/22600439/nurse…
Nonprofits are part of the backbone of society + need to be supported, both in terms of resources and getting a seat at the table. Very proud to lead @fountainhouse, a nonprofit with such an extraordinary legacy/mission. @MTorresSpringer @nonprofitnyPREZ gothamgazette.com/opinion/10716-…
COVID showed us that telehealth was a game changer for mental health - increasing access, services and affordability. Laws like this are a great example of the steps we need to be taking as emergency mandates expire.healthcareitnews.com/news/illinois-…
School is starting back up and we have a two-fold duty to our students and teachers: 1) protecting them from COVID & 2) protecting their mental health. The mental cannot be siloed from the physical, both must be made a priority.
Unfortunately, we never left the first wave of mental health issues caused by COVID. We can't ignore the unpredictable nature of this pandemic + must actively take steps to protect our mental health. forbes.com/sites/jackkell…
Outbreaks at nursing homes in North Carolina are largely being driven by unvaxxed staff. Healthcare workers need to be vaccinated or we will continue to have deja vu. wral.com/coronavirus/ou…
Workforce shortages speak for themselves: employers need to take the mental health of their employees seriously. axios.com/mental-health-…
The situation in Afghanistan may be triggering to many veterans. If you're a veteran struggling with your mental health, please talk to someone. Make the Connection is a great place to start. 🔽maketheconnection.netq
Public health is core infrastructure. Hopefully reports like this will finally make clear what those of us in the field have known for so long, and compel our government to finally act to fund public health twitter.com/ErinBanco/stat…
Spoke to @SejalHathi about how COVID changed the way we think and talk about mental health. 👇�9N
As we come to the end of summer, make sure you take the time to rest and recharge. Your mental health will thank you.
