Deadline extended to Feb. 28 to reply to the comprehensive stressors and mental health survey for emergency managers

The Journal of Emergency Management seeks emergency managers and affiliated professionals for an industry-wide stressors and mental health survey. The goal of the survey is to assess the multitude of factors related to the unique stressors in the emergency management field. The data collected will be used to establish a baseline of the current state of mental health and support analysis and research on how we can better lead, support, recruit, retain, and grow emergency management professionals and organizations capable of meeting the increasing demands of tomorrow. The long-term goal is an annual survey to track improvements or challenges that need to be addressed. The survey is the product of a team led by the Journal of Emergency Management Publisher and Managing Editor Richard DeVito, Jr., and comprised of team members Kim Guevera, Ph.D., and Ali Meyer, MSW, of Mozaik Solutions, Timothy Erickson, MD and Sonny Patel, MPH of Harvard University, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Journal of Emergency Management Editor-in-Chief William Waugh, Jr., Ph.D. Please help by completing this survey. The survey uses Harvard’s Kobo Toolbox for data collection and all data collected is completely blinded. As this is a mental health survey, the appropriate data protection and informed consent safeties are in place. If you are in crisis, please contact your healthcare provider immediately.
