Mental health and healthcare security

Speaker Dr. Bill Howatt, Ph.D., Ed.D., President and Founder, Howatt HR Consulting

The healthcare security profession can be a stressful one at the best of times.

For security professionals who keep staff, patients and visitors safe, here are some tips and best practices for keeping mentally well during these tough times.
