In an effort to assist those in Tuscaloosa working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, University Medical Center is offering free mental health services to first responders and health care providers.

“First responders and health care providers are often functioning at a high level of stress, which may negatively impact their thinking and emotional responses to situations,” said Dr. Martha Crowther, associate dean for research and health policy at the University of Alabama College of Community Health Sciences and a practicing psychologist at UMC.

“It is important to be able to function optimally during this crisis,” she said. “Providing these workers with a way to alleviate some of their distress will hopefully help them function at their best.”
