As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we know that healthcare and medical personnel are working hard and may be in need of additional support. You’re a professional. But you’re also human. Dealing with adults and children who are sick- and scared-can create an enormous burden. It can lead to traumatic stress, similar to that of soldiers who’ve been in combat.
