Understanding the Public Health Workforce’s COVID-19 Mental Health Challenges

The recently released Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), Symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and Suicidal Ideation Among State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Public Health Workers During the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS) highlight the negative mental health consequences reported by the public health workforce as a result of the prolonged and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the public health response and the unprecedented vaccination campaign. In both surveys, more than 50% of respondents – over 70,000 state, tribal, local and territorial public health workers – reported at least two significant mental health symptoms in 2021.
