Mental Health Month and National Nurses Month are coinciding this May, and at a very appropriate time. Nurses and other healthcare workers are making enormous sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic, including their mental health.

Encounter Telepsychiatry, a division of Encounter Telehealth LLC, partners with senior care facilities across the country. We have seen, firsthand, the toll stress and anxiety has taken on the nurses, healthcare workers, and caregivers in our facilities. Encounter provider and VP of Clinical Services, Randy Beckett, has created a short video with some tips for stress management and self-compassion.

If you want to learn more tips on how to manage stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic, please view our previous article, “Encounter Providers’ Guide to Managing Stress and Anxiety“.

And thank you, nurses, for your continuous hard work, dedication, and sacrifices. Your heroic efforts are appreciated.

Randy Beckett, VP of geriatric services at Encounter Telehealth, is a board-certified adult psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and family nurse practitioner.
