PTSD

PTSD is a very real threat to physician wellbeing, especially during this pandemic. Many emergency physicians love the profession for its variety. Still, this type of unfamiliar territory – such as having to hold the phone or iPad as an isolated COVID-19 patient says his/her goodbyes – is not what you trained for. And this crisis is uniquely stressful because there is no clear end in sight.

It’s okay to not be okay. You are not alone. There are tools, resources and crisis support counselors available to help.
