Mental health crises developing as a result of isolation (among many other things), due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. First-responders are a population of individuals especially impacted by the current Pandemic, as the need for applicable resources greatly outweighs the availability of essential personnel. The stigma associated with seeking help, especially as a front-line worker, is as heavy as ever, as showing signs of weakness in a time of crisis is taboo in the profession. It is important to remember that the words “selfish” and “Self-care” are not synonymous, and that seeking mental health treatment is necessary in being able to effectively care for others in need.
