The Mental Health of Healthcare Workers-A survey of the concerns and needs of frontline workers as the pandemic entered its third year

With generous support from the James Irvine Foundation, this survey was commissioned by The Education Fund and administered by Mental Health America (MHA), in partnership with the Mental Health Strategic Impact Initiative (S2i).

The Mental Health of Healthcare Workers augments findings of previous surveys by MHA and others in which most respondents were predominantly degreed medical professionals, such as physicians and nurses. It surveys roughly 5,000 frontline healthcare workers and finds that more than two years of dealing with the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic is causing profound negative impacts on workers’ mental health. As the pandemic continues into its third year, the survey raises serious concerns for the workers, their families, their work environments, as well as their willingness to stay in the healthcare field.
