There has never been a more critical time to address our mental health and to provide support to others in need. Healthcare professionals are the heroes on our front line during the COVID-19 pandemic, but their service to us comes at a significant cost. Moral trauma, guilt, compassion fatigue, sleeplessness, and other physical ramifications have taken a toll.
Join The Quell Foundation and Hartford Health's Dr. John Santopietro as we provide our frontline healthcare workers a space to openly share lived experiences and self-preservation techniques to manage the continued exposure to this global health crisis.

Amplifies frontline hero voices is critical to recovering from this crisis

Great podcast—caught the first episode with Miriam and Dr. Santopietro. So important to cover the front line perspective and how this impacts mental health—but what was most refreshing was how vulnerability, transparency, listening and relationships can help with healing in this space. Hearing directly from these frontline heroes and amplifying their voices is critical to our recovery from this crisis.
