From the American Nurses' Association - Mental Health Resources for Nurses Coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic

Coping mentally and emotionally with the COVID-19 pandemic is difficult for everyone, but even more so for nurses.  Please know that you are not alone-you are providing care to a grateful nation, and the American Nurses Association honors your service.

Below, you will find two categories of resources to assist nurses and other healthcare providers with mental health resources.  The first category is for dealing with stress, fear, and anxiety associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  You may also want to check with your employer, university, state or specialty nurse association, or your state board of nursing about their resources including any employee assistance program (EAP) or peer assistance/counseling programs. The second category contains national lifelines and healthlines. 

If your stress, anxiety, or fear causes you to think about suicide or be in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.
