Supplement 2 2024

Health Worker Mental Health: From the Current Crisis to a Sustainable Future

In 2021, the American Rescue Plan funded research, interventions, training, and education in response to the mental health crisis unfolding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Academy of Medicine, the US Surgeon General, and other stakeholders called for action.

This supplement was conceived by the CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to share the latest response to the needs of a diverse workforce.

Articles explore trends in mental health and well-being, evidence-based interventions and call for additional research, leadership and change at the organization, state, and national levels.

This supplement was sponsored by the CDC and NIOSH, with additional support from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
