With our weekly Psychiatry & Society video taking a winter break, we bring back some of the greatest hits that are timely and continue to relate to current and uprising societal events of psychological interest. Take today’s story, for instance...

The increase in cases, again, is causing hospitals to be overwhelmed again, and that has in turn resulted in an increase in burnout and suicidality.

Moreover, there is evidence for increasing burnout in other workers and parents, as children are still at risk. How we can make systems better for workers is known; it just needs to be operationalized more.
