Speak Up™ For Your Mental Health is a new patient safety campaign from The Joint Commission offering free materials for healthcare workers to download and provide to patients and their families. This campaign includes:
An animated video, in both English and Spanish
Infographics, in both English and Spanish
A Speak Up™ User’s Guide on how and to whom organizations can distribute materials
The Join Commission advises that mental health is just as important as someone’s physical health. Depression and other mental health issues are common, and like physical illnesses they need to be treated.
Speak Up™ For Your Mental Health, a patient safety campaign from The Joint Commission, is designed to educate patients on how to advocate for themselves and their mental health.
In our ongoing series on burnout, Liz Pollock talks about the two types of fatigue that healthcare workers often experience: General fatigue, and fatigue of compassion. Listen to learn more about each one so you can recognize the signs.

We want to thank Liz Pollack for not only sharing this self-assessment but also for her expertise as we work through this video series. Take time to answer the questions. If you already know that you are suffering and need help, one of the recommendations is to seek professional help.
