The Dr. Lorna Breen Foundation’s mission is to reduce burnout of health care professionals.
The Foundation has three main bodies of work targeted at making a long-standing impact on this issue:
The ALL IN: WellBeing First for Healthcare campaign was developed by #FirstRespondersFirst and The Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation as a coalition of leading healthcare organizations committed to:
1) Advancing a state where the well-being of the healthcare workforce is prioritized and individual healthcare workers feel valued and supported so they can sustain their sense of purpose and meaning in their work.
2) Making beneficial progress against persistent mental health and well-being challenges that disadvantage our healthcare workers, and therefore, our healthcare systems and the future of public health.
Their website is a hub of mental health and resiliency resources, tools for implementation, and a platform to share and engage with other perspectives and commentary from frontline healthcare workers, institutional leaders, and the public.
