None of us are immune from stress, especially now. This is a critical moment for us to look out not only for our own mental health but that of our colleagues. In this episode, psychiatrist Dr. Melissa Shepard sits down with our good friend Dr. Neda Frayha to discuss the mental health challenges facing health care workers in the COVID-19 pandemic, and some concrete, tangible tools to help us get through this period.
