Frontline workers have been under a lot of stress due to the current pandemic. A group of Bay Area therapists have come together to provide free therapy to those who feel they need it!
The Frontline Workers Counseling Project was started by San Francisco psychiatrist Elizabeth Rawson and psychologist Michael Levin back in March. They acknowledged the level of stress this group of people were facing and wanted to provide some type of relief. Now, there are more than 450 therapists providing their services.
Therapy sessions can be 30 minutes or shorter-in case the patient does not have a lot of free time. You can schedule online and you can also sign up to be one of the hundreds of therapists to aid front-line workers! Check out the page here.
Services are available to health care workers and all other essential workers, including police, firefighters, teachers, grocery store and delivery service workers, and childcare employees.
