Deep Dive into Mental Health for Frontline Workers with Laura Murray, LCPC
Show Notes

Who is looking out for you and your mental well being?  Do you have a therapist or a good friend or family member to talk to about challenging issues?  Have you avoided thinking about this topic because it's a bit awkward or sometimes associated with a stigma of weakness?  Are you working on the frontlines of this pandemic?  If any of your answers is even possibly a 'yes' then this is your episode.

Welcome back to our loyal listeners and our new guests, thanks for listening and thanks for telling a friend.  Today's episode is arguably one of the most important ones Cullen and Raj have tackled thus far.  Mental health, particularly during these trying times, is possibly something often or commonly neglected by all of us to some degree or another.  Tonight they talk about why our mental health needs to have a more important review in our daily lives to keep us at our optimal life efficiency and quality.

We have an amazing guest to discuss this with; we invited our friend and colleague Laura Murray, LCPC to deep dive into mental health for frontline workers.  However, her advice would certainly apply to everyone.

Laura has a private practice in addition to her professional work in the hospital Emergency Department.  Please get to know her and her professional services at the following links:
