MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Local healthcare workers struggle as pandemic rages on By Megan Gleason @fabflutist2716 Once considered heroes by the entire nation, now largely taken for granted while hospitals run at over 100% capacity, local healthcare workers are feeling burnt out from the COVID-19 pandemic as we enter over a year and a half of the crisis with people still refusing to get vaccinated. At one point in the pandemic, there was a light at the end of the tunnel where things seemed to be returning to normal, according to Steve Nuanez, director of Employee Well-Being at the University of New Mexico Hospital. Now, however, New Mexico is seeing over 1,000 COVID-19 cases regularly again and Nuanez said UNMH is usually running at 140% capacity. “With all these high levels of patients in the hospitals … there’s a lot of sense of ‘I can’t possibly do my job to its fullest capacity because there are too many people; there are too many patients,’” Nuanez said. Elizabeth Lawrence, chief wellness officer and assistant dean for Professional Well-Being at UNM’s School of Medicine, referenced an article in the Atlantic that explained why 1 in 5 healthcare workers have quit their jobs since the pandemic began. “There’s sort of a separate pandemic of mental health issues in providers, in clinicians, because of the trauma of seeing so much death, because of the trauma of

feeling you’re not doing your best work, … because of the political trauma and people debating science,” Lawrence said. Nursing resident Sarah Storbakken said it’s been difficult to treat “adults who refuse to get vaccinated, refuse to take precautions, and are now the ones who are in our beds. And we’ll be sending them to intubate them and telling them to say goodbye and they’ll be telling us that we’re lying.” “The political tension is just, at this point, a willful ignorance and it’s just pure confirmation bias. They’re so deep in it now that they can’t be proved wrong because that means they’re horrible people, which they are at this point. They’d rather be right and die and kill the people around them than admit that they’re wrong,” Storbakken said. According to Storbakken, some patients that are being put into intensive care units without much time left to live are asking too late to be vaccinated. Even her own uncle, who recently passed away, “had to be actively dying and his last conversation with his kids was to tell them to go get vaccinated.” “I would say that’s hard — the compassion fatigue and just trying to have patience with these people who don’t, for lack of a better term, give a shit whether you live or die because they’re so wrapped up in their own ignorance … They don’t care about me at all because they think I’m lying and they think that they’re not dying, that this is all a hoax,” Storbakken said. While healthcare workers have been considered heroes who treat all

At this point in the semester, extreme stress and burnout are incredibly common, and it’s more than okay to ask for help. Here’s a list of my favorite campus resources at the University of New Mexico that you should look into if you’re in need of assistance.

Agora Crisis Center Payment: Free The Agora Crisis Center offers several free services including but not limited to a helpline, an online emotional support chat and information on

of their patients regardless of vaccination status, Nuanez said they need to be more realistically humanized. Lawrence said daily gratitude practices can be extremely helpful to get through the days. Storbakken said that in addition to therapy, she tries to find small things that she enjoys doing each day. Work culture is essential to aid in preventing or easing burnout, according to Nuanez. While individual tasks like meditating or gratitude practices also help, he said that those acts alone can’t solve everything. However, Storbakken said when she tried to reach out to her superiors for help during her time working at UNMH, they didn’t respond in a timely or effective manner. She had recently been diagnosed with ADHD and was ul-

timately let go at the 90-day review for “not learning fast enough.” “I maybe naively was very honest about my struggles with my mental health and my new diagnosis because I had already been working there for a year previously so I thought I could confide in them … I didn’t know there was a deadline for me to be a perfect nurse, and I didn’t know that deadline was 90 days,” Storbakken said. Storbakken said she was not made aware of areas that could have helped at the time, such as involving the union, the Committee of Interns and Residents. She wants to pursue a doctorate degree in psychiatric medicine in the future to ensure that this doesn’t happen again to others. As for healthcare workers in the pandemic overall, Nuanez said it’s

how to help yourself and others. After meeting a few of the volunteers at Agora, I can confidently say that they are committed to helping others in every way they can. The center itself is small but it’s so clearly full of people who care about people. According to Agora’s website, their volunteers are trained and “ready to provide compassionate, nonjudgmental help for anyone in need of emotional support.” Although Agora has a “crisis hotline” they emphasize that you don’t need to be in crisis in order

to utilize their services. Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention Payment: No fees for students New Mexico has an inordinately large problem with substance abuse. According to the Sage Neuroscience Center, “New Mexico had the 15th-highest drug overdose death rate in the United States in 2018.” Not only is this incredibly concerning, but substance use disorder and mental health are inextricably linked. The Campus Office of Substance

important for them not to blame themselves for burnout, which is a natural response in this type of situation. “The fact is that it’s an imperfect system and we’re in the middle of a pandemic and it’s overloaded,” Nuanez said. “It’s predictable that people would start to get burnt out; it’s predictable that people would become exhausted.” Lawrence said it’s important for individuals to “avoid stigmatizing the need for help” and that everyone needs “extra support during this time.” She recommended talking with others, such as counselors or peers, and referenced the peer supporters available at UNMH. Storbakken said the booster shot can be the solution to permanently turning around the pandemic. Even while the political tensions rage, she said that factual science, like peer-reviewed studies on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, can help people understand the reality of what the pandemic is. “You just realize that these people that you thought cared about you don’t. Even patients — I don’t expect you to care for me like the way that I’m caring for you but I at least expect you to respect me as a human, as a human being,” Storbakken said.

Abuse Prevention may not seem like a mental health resource, but according to HelpGuide, a nonprofit mental health website, substance abuse and disorders like depression and anxiety are “closely linked.” Furthermore, “of all people diagnosed as mentally ill, 29% abuse alcohol or drugs.” COSAP has tools like screenings to measure where you fall on the alcoholism spectrum as well as mental health screenings, information on how to quit smoking and

Student Health and Counseling is located on UNM main campus.

Student Health and Counseling Payment: One free triage session and one regular session, $15 copay or less thereafter (select insurance providers accepted) Student Health and Counseling has been a longtime resource for students who are struggling with their mental health and, because they take most insurance options, have a cheap copay and are easily accessible on campus, it can be a better option for students than an outside provider. SHAC has made getting counseling easier than ever with virtual appointments. As someone with anxiety, I’ve found this feature to be incredibly helpful in initializing the help seeking process — even if it is due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. Along with providing counseling services, SHAC regularly holds in-

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2021 / PAGE 3 formative events for students. Future events to look forward to include the Stress and Anxiety Toolbox for LGBTQIA+ Students on Dec. 1 and Coping with Endings on Dec. 7. Women’s Resource Center Payment: Free The Women’s Resource Center welcomes students who are struggling with stress, anxiety, academic pressure, traumatic experiences and more. Regardless of their name, the WRC is committed to creating a safe space for all students, no matter what race, sex, gender identity, etc. they are. The WRC seems to be overlooked as a place to get counseling because it isn’t directly stated in the name of the center, but digging further into what resource centers on campus provide might just lead you to find a hidden gem. According to the WRC, they partner with the UNM Counselor

Education program in order to “ensure you receive competent and ethical services delivered by advanced graduate-level counseling students — who are supervised by both a licensed counselor site coordinator and licensed faculty in the Counselor Education Program.” The WRC hosts several virtual events, such as a weekly eating disorder support group or an anonymous chat for sexual violence survivors. These are just a few of the many great resources here on campus that UNM students have access to. More information or other resources can be found online.

Self-help tool TAO promoted during Mental Health Screening Week By Megan Gleason @fabflutist2716 Help is as near as a click away for Lobos at the University of New Mexico. And just after the University’s Mental Health Screening Week — the first week of its kind at UNM — it’s time now rather than later to take stock of personal mental health. Therapy Assistance Online is an anonymous, free online resource for all affiliates of UNM. This tool, which was largely promoted during UNM’s Mental Health Screening Week that took place from Nov. 15-19, aims to provide mental health and well-being aid for individuals. The only thing needed to access it is an active UNM email. Former college counseling center director Sherry Benton created TAO in 2012 after students faced waiting lists to see counselors at her large, public university — the same situation that students at UNM sometimes face at Student Health and Counseling. “I think it’s really important because it does two things: it helps identify the stressors we expect students to have — it helps them use tools to become aware of that — and it also decreases the stigma around help-seeking,” SHAC associate clini-

cal director Karen Lucero said. Content about anxiety, finances, COVID-19-related topics and more can be accessed on TAO. “TAO is designed to relegate and give you a bit more information about why a person would feel a certain way after a specific event happened … There’s a plethora of different topics on TAO,” Noah Solomon, TAO administrator coordinator and director, said. The COVID-19 pandemic has made a significant impact on the mental health of many individuals, and Lucero said it has created more stressors for a lot of people, “whether it was isolation, losing a loved one, financial stress or having to move in with their parents.” Although the program has mainly been marketed toward students, Solomon said it’s also viable for staff, faculty and more. “Everyone from newly enrolled freshmen all the way up to the president’s office can use TAO, and everyone in between,” Solomon said. Solomon said that since the pandemic started last March, SHAC has seen an increase in mental health crises, largely in the student population. “Using TAO — this free service we have — even for 15 minutes, is increasing (students’) knowl-

edge around external pressures or anxiety (and) can go a long way,” Lucero said. “It’s a self-help resource that just will quickly provide ideas or tools around how to manage that pressure or stress.” Mental Health Screening Week used to only span a day at UNM, typically around Oct. 10, which is World Mental Health Day. However, due to scheduling conflicts, the event was pushed to November this year and was fully virtual due to the pandemic. The event was lengthened from a day to a week due to an updated version release of TAO that had a new interface. To explain the new version and how it works, Solomon created a five-part set of videos that explained the logistics of TAO. The lengthened event also al-

lowed for Zoom drop-in groups with SHAC counseling providers, where individuals could talk to providers about their TAO results. This week-long event serves as a type of experiment to help determine how long the event will be again in the future, according to Solomon. Lucero said TAO can “catapult change” and is especially useful as finals week, a very stressful time in the semester, nears. “I encourage students to appraise what’s happened this semester and then look forward to the next semester and figure out how to use this resource to support their changes or maybe better manage their stress,” Lucero said. The program is not mandatory for anyone to use but rather can serve as a reminder that resources are

there, Solomon said. He said UNM has other helpful aids as well, such as the resource centers, Agora Crisis Center, SHAC and Counseling, Assistance and Referral Services. “We all at the SHAC encourage everyone to get a screening, and not just wait for the one day a year. Do this whenever you feel like, ‘I might want to work on an issue’ or do it when you feel like, ‘You know, it’s been a while since I checked in,’” Solomon said. “It’s good to have check-ins with yourself and with professionals every now and then.” Megan Gleason is the Editor-inChief of the Daily Lobo.

LETTER

Finding safety and help amid the pandemic

As we move into the end of fall term, our first term for students back on campus since spring 2020, we have had some time to reflect on the impact of the past pandemic season and our vision for moving forward; hopefully, differently. For the past 18 months we’ve maintained a constant vigilance about our health and safety, a constant distance from others and a constant attention to distressing information from our various news feeds. All this has increased our level of anxiety, affected our attitudes about ourselves and our world and impacted our behavior in often wildly inappropriate ways. You may have experienced this, or read about it daily in our media. There’s a good explanation for this: anxiety, which is escalated nervous system arousal in the face of threat, primes us to fight,

flee or freeze. Lots of fighting folks these days. Lots of avoidant folks these days, too. And lots of folks incapacitated by the stress. I recommend you do a selfcheck to determine which you may be and to identify ways this may be keeping you from being and doing what you want. People have known me to say, “It’s not a problem if it’s not a problem.” But, we know when we have a problem; it’s when we’re in conflict with others about it, when it’s a barrier to our goals or when we’re experiencing undesirable consequences because of it. If this is you, just know that you’re not alone. Anxiety is the No. 1 mental health problem right now. Anxiety affects almost 20% of the population but just over 30% of those people ever seek help (ADAA, 2020). And

anxiety is highly treatable. This stressful past 18 months has also changed the landscape considerably, making us more aware than ever of social injustices, environmental catastrophe, impacts of war and the economic fallout of this global pandemic. We mental health providers at SHAC and across the nation are hearing from clients daily about the negative view of the future shaped by this period. While depression usually affects about 8% of the adult population (NIMH, 2019), during the past 18 months that rate has risen to 27.8% (Ettman et al., 2021). Depression (a mood condition affected by negative thoughts about self, others and the world) kind of makes sense right now. It’s hard to feel bright and optimistic when chaos abounds and when our

constant inputs are of the worst in human behavior. So let’s stop it. Let’s change our feeds. Change the channel. Yes, chaos is out there. But so is beauty and love and laughter and generosity. Safety exists, too, in the safe spaces we create and maintain. Do what you need to do to create safety. Continue to mask, distance, sanitize just like we’ve been taught. Get vaccinated; stay vaccinated. But also make choices to minimize your exposure to toxic or violent people, places and images. If you need help with that, we’re here. Call us anytime (after hours, press option 3). Also know that depression is treatable, too. It can take time, and requires support and sometimes professional treatment, but we’ve got that, too. Depending upon the level of distress you can do some self-help using our TAO (Therapy Assistance Online) platform (find it and other help

at mentalhealth.unm.edu) or call to schedule some comprehensive care. But, it helps also to know that for every bleak possibility, there is a bright one. Our world is changing, and some changes are for the better. Look for those; listen for those. One positive development of these pandemic times is that the development of virtual mental health services and platforms exploded. They are everywhere and accessible all the time; for therapy, for support groups, for recovery, for social connection (you can find some at Verywell Mind with reviews) so no matter where you are, no matter what time it is, there is help available. Reach out. Let’s make that one positive change we can count on. Stephanie D McIver, Ph.D., is the director of counseling services at UNM Student Health and Counseling

OPINION

UNM lacks necessary mental health support By Natalie Jude @natalaroni

Despite prolific reports of poor mental health amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Mexico maintains a limited position on the issue. Considering the generational emphasis on mental health advocacy, the question remains as to why students suffering with poor mental health continue to struggle alone. UNM claims to offer support via Student Health and Counseling and, while in theory that provision is helpful, if you can manage even to have your phone call picked up, the likelihood that you’ll get an appointment scheduled by season’s end is slim to none. Amid a pandemic, these resources are needed more than ever. The support systems that SHAC provides wouldn’t be enough, though, even if fully functional. According to the National Insti-

tute of Mental Health, suicide was the second-leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 34 in the U.S. in 2019. In 2018, New Mexico had the second-highest suicide rate by state in the entirety of the nation, with rates dropping slightly in 2019 to place New Mexico in fourth. The issue of suicide, general lack of awareness and genuine support for New Mexicans in the realm of mental health remains painfully problematic, especially for those within the age range of 10 and 34, wherein suicide continues to be most prolific. SHAC employs a total of 11 counseling staff, five of whom are social workers and five of whom are licenced professional clinical counselors. For a student body of more than 21,000 on the main campus, this leads to an approximate ratio of 1,900 students to 1 SHAC counseling staff member . What seems to be attempting to fill the gap for the lack of professionals at SHAC is Therapy

Assistance Online, an automated program to help with mental health. While digital provisions are better than none, it in no way replaces the human connection found in live counseling sessions. Other areas of support at UNM are also lacking. For example, the LGBTQ Resource Center only employs one professional staff member. That isn’t enough to aid the large number of students attending UNM and specifically impacts marginalized communities. As we navigate the pandemic, the need for mental health assistance is greater than ever. The Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit organization that focuses on national health issues, reported that “during the pandemic, about 4 in 10 adults in the US have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, a share that has been largely consistent, up from 1 in 10 adults who reported these symptoms from January to June 2019.”​With nearly half of the adult population of the U.S. struggling, there’s no debating the

Coping with seasonal depression Cooper recommended the Healthy Mind Platter, a system that divides a day into seven mental activities — similar to mapping out a balanced diet — for a balanced mental lifestyle. “We're talking about (a) mindbody connection. It’s hard to separate that,” Cooper said. Another essential part of coping with SAD is exposure to sunlight, as the disruption of circadian rhythms as a result of decreased sunlight is believed to be a factor in the onset of seasonal depression, according to Mayo Clinic. If winter weather stifles your ability to get sunlight, Nguyen recommended purchasing a light box that meets the Center for Environmental Therapy’s light box standards to mimic the effect

Seasonal Affective Disorder, otherwise known as seasonal depression, is a form of depression in which symptoms present during specific seasons, typically during the fall and winter months. Seasonal depression affects an estimated 10 million Americans yearly, but there are methods to help identify and cope with symptoms. According to Albuquerque therapist Anne-Marie Cooper, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) symptoms include abnormal sleep and eating patterns, general low mood and a “lack of willingness to engage in things that typically one would usually like to engage in.”

According to Nguyen, there are several self-care processes that help with SAD in addition to seeking professional help, such as eating well and exercising. “These are things we should do anyways; not just for depression, but for good self-care,” Nguyen said.

He recommended the NMConnect app for those suffering with SAD, which links users directly to the New Mexico Crisis Helpline.
