October is a HUGE month for those of us in the mental health industry with Mental health month / mental health week and World Mental Health Day all being observed this month.
While our purpose is to help patient's with their wellness journeys, our 'people first' outlook also includes focusing on the wellbeing of our staff.
This October we take inspiration from the Menta Health Month theme 'We all have a role to play' and turn the focus back to our staff. It's time for the caregivers to think about self-care and put into practice what we preach / teach and share with our patients.
Below we share our best tips for self care this month - raw, unedited, straight rom the mouths (or pens) of those in the mental health industry.
