The mental and physical toll the COVID-19 crisis is having on our frontline health workers is rapidly becoming an epidemic in itself. These health professionals are more than our first responders, they will be our guides and community allies on the road to recovery once the epidemic ends. That’s why the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation is joining First Responders First to help support and sustain the health and well-being of frontline workers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. As a long-time advocate and expert, Johnson & Johnson has the responsibility and resolve to deliver on this next chapter in mental health and well-being. We believe a critical way to realize this goal is to engage the employers and organizations that depend upon frontline health workers directly. We are humbled to collaborate with Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Thrive Global and the CAA Foundation at this important moment to support those on the front lines — they’re taking care of us; now we must take care of them.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
