A Conversation with HealthStream and CredibleMind

The mental health crisis for healthcare workers isn’t going away. In fact, it’s growing. A recent study from American Hospital Association found that 93% of health care workers reported stress, 86% reported anxiety, 77% reported frustration, 76% reported exhaustion and burnout, and 75% said they were overwhelmed. Without a support system, employees are left to manage their mental health on their own. For some, they never manage their mental health at all.

This video features the CEO of CredibleMind, Dr. Deryk Van Brunt. CredibleMind is an expert partner of HealthStream.

In this special 10-minute conversation, we discuss leadership’s impact on staff wellbeing and the necessary factors that make up environment where mental health can flourish.
