The Cost of Caring
Helping professions, like nursing or social work, can be incredibly rewarding careers. But, the work of caring for others through some of the darkest moments of their lives also comes at a cost. Conditions like burnout, compassion fatigue, depression, PTSD, anxiety, and substance misuse are far too common among helping professionals. More importantly, these conditions often go untreated. Self-Care For Advocates is committed to addressing this epidemic and helping those who care for others take care of themselves too!Learn More About Self-Care and Advocate Trauma
