Summary/Abstract: We develop a conceptual framework based on a systematic and comprehensive literature review on acute depression, extreme anxiety, and prolonged stress among COVID-19 frontline healthcare workers. Building our argument by drawing on data collected from AMS, APA, ARI, BMA, McKinsey, MQ, Nursing Times, and Sermo, we performed analyses and made estimates regarding how the stress and anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are having an effect on healthcare professionals’ mental health. The data for this research were gathered via an online survey questionnaire and were analyzed through structural equation modeling on a sample of 660 respondents.
