Sentara Healthcare offers free mental health resources to healthcare professionals in Virginia and North Carolina
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Officials at Sentara Healthcare say they are offering free mental and emotional health resources to doctors and medical providers in Virginia and North Carolina.
The latest move is an extension of Sentara’s partnership with meQuilibrium (“meQ” for short) at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through meQ, Sentara employees were able to receive personalized resources tailored to their mental and emotional needs.
Health professionals have been coping with the daily stresses of work, recognized for some time and exacerbated by the pandemic. Sentara Healthcare officials say they are committed to helping the healthcare community improve their emotional well-being.
The new expansion will provide expanded mental and emotional health resources to up to 40,000 healthcare professionals practicing in North Carolina or Virginia with an active National Provider Identifier (NPI), regardless of their affiliation with Sentara Healthcare.
Those with an NPI include physicians (MDs), nurse practitioners (NPs), and physician associates (PAs).
meQ is currently the only clinically validated platform working in behavioral psychology, neuroscience and analytics to help workforces. With Sentara’s latest update, up to 40,000 community healthcare providers will have free access to the app for a full year.
