Health Workforce Innovations in Response to the COVID Pandemic
Psychologists’ Association of Alberta Disaster Response Network is active during COVID-19
COVID-19 can have profound mental health effects on individuals, especially health workers.
The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta Disaster Response Network (PAA DRN) targets the psychological well-being/mental health needs of disaster victims and responders who are involved in disasters with focus on serving those who have suffered trauma as a result of a disaster.
Victims of disasters and responders can access this service by contacting the PAA office. The office will record the callers information and provide it to a psychologist on the PAA DRN list. Clients should expect to hear from a psychologist within 2 business days. PAA will not share any client information.
The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta would like to help those Albertan’s who are experiencing distress due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our Disaster Response Network members are offering pro-bono psychological services with priority for health care providers and first responders traumatized by recent events. This is not a crisis line or a referral service but pro-bono support by volunteer psychologists of 1-3 sessions for those in need.
