Emotional and Mental Well-Being 

Suicidal Thoughts?  Get Help: 800-273-TALK (8255) or chat with a counselor 24/7.

​Nurse anesthetists, like other health care professionals, can experience occupational hazards of stress, burnout, compassion fatigue, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Self care is important, along with learning healthy coping mechanisms in both your personal and professional life.​

From the Mental Health America website: "Not everyone experiences mental illness—but everyone has mental health. Instead of focusing only on people who have already reached a point of crisis, we try to help people understand their mental health needs as early as possible.” 

See the collection of research and published articles for the topic of stress and burnout among anesthesia professionals.
