National Nurses Day (May 6) is a moment to honor the work of nurses who make patient care possible. Just as nurses tend to us, AFSP is committed to promoting the well-being of all nurses.

Healthcare professionals who proactively address their mental health are better able to optimally care for patients and sustain their resilience in the face of mental health concerns such as burnout, depression, stress and suicide risk.

Below you’ll find a listing of crisis resources for immediate support for healthcare professionals; resources and programs for institutions and organizations interested in preventing suicide and enhancing the mental health of their healthcare professionals; as well as resources for support after a suicide loss for individuals and communities.
