The Impact of COVID-19 on cross-border nurses' mental health 

In collaboration with Dr. Dana Menard (Principal Investigator; Department of Psychology), and Drs. Jody Ralph and Laurie Freeman (Faculty of Nursing) we are examining the mental health and well-being of nurses working on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic, in Windsor, Ontario, and in Detroit, Michigan. 


Our goals are to 1) assess the longitudinal impact of COVID-19 on the mental health and well-being of nurses as the pandemic transitions from initial crisis management, persistent epidemic management, and epidemic recovery by collecting both qualitative (interviews) and quantitative data on stress, coping, and mental health outcomes; 2) support local hospitals in augmenting current workplace practices and community-based programming to aid in the recovery and resilience of front-line responders, and 3) provide guidance for prevention and preparedness policies related to mental health and future public health crises in hospitals.

We are currently analysing qualitative data from wave 1 of our study. For more information about this project, please email Dr. Menard ( or myself (
