This is a R21 proposal in progress to be submitted to NIH-NIDA in early June. This proposed study is significant given the scale of COVID-19 and the number of healthcare providers who may be at significant risk for mental health and/or substance use problems; innovative in the combined epidemiological/intervention approach as well as the development of an online platform for intervention delivery specifically tailored to healthcare workers.
