The UNC School of Medicine and UNC Health have launched the Heroes Health Initiative to help support the mental health of first responders and health care workers during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The app is available through the App Store/Google Play Store in the United States, free of charge to first responders, health care workers, and their organizations.
The app provides links to get immediate crisis support and other mental health resources, e.g., to improve sleep and stress. This resource list focuses on apps and services that are either free or offered at reduced costs to health care workers.
Mission for Heroes Health:
“Healthcare workers are, and always have been, heroes. Healthcare workers brought many of us into this world, cared for us through our weakest moments, and comforted our family members when their final hours drew near. This Initiative was borne out of a determination to give back to the nurses, doctors, and allied health professionals that make life possible.”
