Abstract

This research will focus on the impact that COVID-19 has had on one of the more impacted industries in our community – mental healthcare. In this research study, insightful information will be gained surrounding how different mental health organizations in the greater Tampa Bay area have actively supported their employees during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. The literature review conducted will compare non-profit and for-profit mental health organizations prior to COVID-19, so accurate comparisons can be made with the acquisition of the latest data. A survey will be administered in which employees from local organizations will provide their feedback on the current state of their specific mental health organizations’ support and the organizations’ ability to adjust to the needs of their employees. It is expected that the results of this survey will provide useful suggestions and conclusions for the organizations being surveyed as well as other businesses within the industry. This data will be paralleled with the literature review’s findings to grasp the variance between how non-profit and for-profit organizations have handled this pandemic.
