Dear Colleague:

Reports from the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak describe overflowing ICUs, severe shortages of equipment, and thousands of deaths, including of some healthcare workers. Healthcare workers are making enormous sacrifices every day to defeat this virus
and we must never forget their efforts. The horrific realities on the front lines also mean that we must ensure they have access to the mental health resources they need to endure the taxing months ahead and to recover in the outbreak’s aftermath.

Please join me in calling on leadership to prioritize the mental health needs of healthcare workers treating coronavirus patients. If you would like to sign the letter, please contact Rebecca Lauer in my office at rebecca.lauer@mail.house.gov by COB
Friday, May 1
. Thank you for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,

Raja Krishnamoorthi

Member of Congress
