    It's not a secret that there has been a huge decline in mental health with the pandemic. My colleague and I had a discussion about this, and the bottom line is this: every suicide is preventable.

    We had a bit of a debate about whether it was "due to COVID" that we, and our system, are failing these patients, but the bottom line is that any patient who completes suicide has been failed. The bigger problem is that now we have less and less safety nets and preventative resources for these patients because almost everything we've got is being funneled into not having the urgent/emergent care settings completely fall apart.

    So if you are thinking that this pandemic isn't real, that there's nothing to be afraid of, that it won't hurt you--well, I have some unfortunate news for you. Maybe you won't be infected with COVID, but someone you love will, and you will lose them. Or maybe you will be very, very lucky, and no one you know is infected with COVID, or at least no one you know dies from it... but I guarantee you, infected or not, you know someone who is suffering, and that person probably could get the help they need if our system was not constantly teetering on the brink of total breakdown even before a global pandemic razed us to the ground.

    If you are a human that cares about or even loves just one other human on this planet--wear your mask, wash your hands, don't gather with others, stay home if you're sick, and fight for paid sick days.

    There was a teenager who came to the ED a few days ago because she was constantly thinking about suicide. She couldn't stop the thoughts at home, and thankfully she said something to someone. She told her therapist and she told her mom, and her mom got her to the emergency department to see us. After she gave me her history, I told her multiple times, "I'm so proud of you for coming here today. Thank you for sharing this with people that care about you, and thank you for sharing this with me. I'm so, so happy that you did this today, because it's not easy."

    She burst into tears when I told her this. "Thank you for helping me."

    "We are always here to help you, but the most important thing is that you believed we would. That's why I'm so grateful--you came here and you're giving us that chance."

    Another kid came to us, vital signs absent for almost an hour because he didn't have someone he felt like he could talk to. He didn't have the resources and he didn't have the trust that someone would care if he was gone. We couldn't save him.

    Maybe if he had been going to school in person, someone would've noticed he wasn't showing up. Maybe if his friends weren't trying their hardest to keep it together on their own, then they would've had the mental and emotional energy to reach out and check on him. Maybe if his parents could afford to take time off work they would've recognized the signs and forced him to come to the ED to get help.

    Maybe if the government (and the public) actually listened to healthcare providers' advice, and maybe if people would stop delaying their vaccinations because they're "shopping" for a specific one, and maybe if we spent just a little less time in the "me, me, me", we might've saved this kiddo long before he ever made the decision to take his own life.

    But please, carry on about how taking a vacation is your right because it's your life. We will still be here to take care of you if you get sick and need a ventilator, including all the other people that you might infect along the way. Everything I just said probably doesn't matter because it had nothing to do with saving you, right?

    During a group chat with my friends we were discussing how the crap going on in life right now just keeps piling on and I said:

    "COVID in general has been like this Trauma Titration™ wherein the world (but mostly, the government) piles on just a little more moral injury and burnout fodder and general s**t that we do our very best to absorb and appear unaffected until they finally tip us over and we go absolutely bats*** f***ing crazy."

    Nurses are an Essential Resource. When They Burn Out, Patients Suffer

    "Amid the societal calamity around this latest pandemic wave, we as a public are not nearly as worried about running out of the most essential resource keeping us going: nurses. Nurses, the backbone of the Canadian health care system, are working under conditions that are brutal and unsustainable. Many will experience burnout, or leave the profession altogether. But the weightiest burden will undoubtedly be suffered by patients themselves."

    "We are falling far short of the gold standard for nursing our sickest patients in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) at a time when the number of these patients is increasing daily. That standard, in Canada and internationally, is a model of nursing that anticipates and reflects the needs of the sickest patients; in short, one nurse for one patient. We are nowhere near meeting that standard consistently. Instead of one nurse looking after one critically ill patient, one nurse often has to look after two or three or four such patients. In ICUs, this is called a 'doubles shift.' When this happens, nurses skip much needed breaks and meals; many stay hours beyond their regular 12-hour shift to help transition to the next team of nurses, who are also short-staffed."

    "It doesn’t help that prior to the pandemic, our nurses were already grappling with psychological distress. Pre-COVID data revealed that almost one third of working Canadian nurses reported clinically significant symptoms of burnout. After the first wave of COVID, a 2020 study from the United States reported severe PTSD in 55 per cent of nurses. It’s not a reach to presume these statistics will worsen as COVID rages on. And when nurses are suffering, their patients will too."

    "Nursing attrition is another devastating blow; an extensive survey of nurses done in the U.S. in 2018 showed that more than 30 per cent of nurses who left the profession did so because of burnout. Fewer nurses mean more of those doubles shifts and increased errors, compromised standards of care and bad outcomes for patients. .... While many nurses will leave, many more will stay and continue to struggle, with some opting for harmful coping strategies. This was seen in follow-up of frontline workers of the 2003 SARS crisis, where many mitigated the long-term effects of post-traumatic symptoms and psychological distress with self-isolation, excessive smoking or alcohol use."

    Signs that you are having a burnout and tips on how to cope with it

    Signs that you are having a burnout and tips on how to cope with it

    New Delhi: While the whole world fights a battle against the coronavirus pandemic, office work has not stopped. While it used to be a 9 to 5 shift earlier, now homes have become offices themselves. Constant calls, meetings, deadlines to meet, and feeling locked in the house can affect one’s mental health. Also, earlier there was a thin line between your professional and personal life that could…

    Weiner et al.

    L’estudi és troba en marxa al moment de la recolecció de les dades. Els resultats és farán públics el mes de Març de 2021.

    La intervenció, "My Health Too”, és un estudi grup-control (amb un total de 120participants) a cada un dels hospitals de la zona est de França, on és realitzaran 7 sessions online de Teràpia Cognitiu-Conductual (CBT) al grup experimental i sessions de biblioteràpia al grup control. Se l’hi uneix una línia que presta servei entre setmana de 9h a 17h i refereix a les persones que necessitin més suport. A més s’estableix una pàgina web que conté informació de salut de forma anònima i segura.

    L'intervenció consisteix en la creació d’un lloc web que inclou les característiques de la iniciativa, que emparella una estudiant d’infermeria (mentée) i una o més infermera en exercici (mentor) i crea així una “parella de benestar”, que mitjançant reunions per videotrucada és comunicaven i realitzaven les intervencions que prioritzen l’activitat física, l’alimentació saludable, patrons de son i unes bases que reforcin la resiliència.

    Durant les 6 setmanes de durada del programa el 41% de les infermeres és va reunir 4 vegades amb la seva estudiant d’infermeria en practiques assignada, 12.8% ho van fer 5 vegades i el 12.8% restant 6 vegades. El 40.5% declaren tenir un o més símptomes de burnout, i un 8.1% afirmen sentir-se “completament cremades”. El 55.6% de les estudiants d’infermeria en pràctiques declara tenir símptomes de burnout de forma ocasional mentre que un 16.7% afirma que són continus. Un 77.8% creu que les participats amb les que han treballat s’han beneficiat del programa.

    A través del programa les estudiants d’infermeria han pogut conèixer de primera mà con s’adreça la pandèmia, el seu impacte i com és de necessari prioritzar el benestar i la resiliència per a la seva futura pràctica.

    Sockalingam et al.

    L'intervenció consisteix en la implementació del Programa ECHO-CWC (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, Coping With COVID) al Centre per les Addiccions i la Salut Mental d’Ontàrio (CAMH), dos sessions setmanals d’una hora de duració on és realitzen exercicis de mindfulness, preguntes i respostes en relació al COVID-19, un cas per il·lustrar estratègies afrontament i una activitat per estimular la reflexió i la connexió de la comunitat.

    Tot i que no ha finalitzat la seva recol·lecció de dades els autors comparteixen aquest article preliminar coneixen que totes les eines que és posin a l’abast dels professionals sanitaris poden ajudar en la situació de pandèmia actual, que comporta un greuge per a la salut mental de tot el personal sanitari.

    Un total de 426 persones participen activament en el programa. Al final de les primeres 5 sessions un 85.5% afirma sentir estrès al lloc de feina, 75.2% por d’infectar a una altra persona i 70.5% por d’emmalaltir. Un 59.7%, però, acceptaven voluntàriament el risc d’exposar-se a tractar pacients de COVID-19.

    Mellins et al.

    Entre Març i Juny 186 grups de 1-30 (aproximadament 1500 persones) dels 40 departaments del Centre Médic Irving de la Universitat de Columbia, participen en les diferents intervencions:

    1) Grups de Suport Entre Iguals (30min): Virtuals; basades en la estructura de cada departament/unitat.

    2) Sessions de Suport Individualitzades Entre Iguals (20min): Debats sobre el reptes i formes d’enfrontar-se a ells i ser resilent.

    3) Mítings en Petits i Grans Grups (30-60min): Virtuals; enfocats en gestió de l’estrès, l’ansietat, el trauma, la pèrdua, el dol i estratègies per donar suport a l’autocuidatge i al benestar emocional.

    4) Elaboració de la Guia del Facilitador CopeColumbia: Estratègies d’afrontament basades en la evidencia.

    Les dades no han sigut sistemàticament revisades previ o posterior a l’aplicació de les intervencions, així doncs, no és pode identificar aquelles parts que poden haver sigut més profitoses.

    Però, els autors destaquen qué al tenir els professionals de salut mental proveint durant tot l’estudi com a facilitadors ha permès donar una assistència més ràpida i eficient als professionals que necessitaven d’una atenció individualitzada.

    La intervenció consiteix en desenvolupar i avaluar un Paquet

    d’Aprenentatge Digital per assistir als professionals sanitaris en el seu benestar psicològic durant la pandèmia de COVID-19, informant sobre els impactes i respostes que té la pandèmia sobre la salut mental, encoratjant al col·lectiu a buscar ajuda, proporcionant informació, suport i un espai per els usuaris.

    Als 7 dies de la seva posada en marxa la web va ser visitada 17633 vegades i va ser vist més de 50000 vegades a les xarxes socials. Tot i la limitació que suposa el temps més del 75% dels 55 participants en l’enquesta d’avaluació realitzada una setmana de la posada en marxa afirmen que la intervenció és pràctica i la recomanarien a d’altres possibles usuaris.
