    Mental Health Therapy for Frontline Workers

    None of us were prepared for the global pandemic we find ourselves in.

    Not parents, teachers, and certainly not the healthcare workers around the country. Doctors and nurses soon found themselves working double shifts to care for sick people. The rest of the world went into lockdown and people stayed home, safe and sound. Yet, these frontline workers showed up day after day, putting their health and life on the line.

    To keep their families safe, many have found other living arrangements. The idea of exposing their family to something they may have been exposed to at work was too much of a risk. So, many mothers and fathers also had to deal with the stress and sadness of being away from their families during the height of the pandemic.

    While many frontline workers appear stoic, all this stress and fear took its toll. Even the bravest among us felt the effects. As a result, many frontline workers have found themselves burnt out. In fact, may have also experienced symptoms of depression and anxiety as well.

    Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety

    It’s common for everyone to feel stressed or sad from time to time. But when certain symptoms linger, you are likely dealing with depression or anxiety. If you’ve never dealt with either before, you may not know the symptoms.

    • A lack of energy
    • Feelings of hopelessness

    • Appetite disruption (eating too much or too little)
    • Difficulty focusing
