What is Self-Care?
Contrary to popular belief, self-care is not just face masks and bubble baths. Self-care refers to the things we do to protect, build, and recover our physical, psychological, and environmental resources. It is a necessary skill that all helping professionals need in order to sustain themselves and the causes they care about. We are building a movement to prevent advocate trauma, promote self-care, and reimagine health and justice within the helping professions.Learn More About Self-Care and Advocate Trauma
How We Work
Self-care only works if there’s a community of support. We’re here to help.
For individual helping professionals, we offer a free and confidential 24/7 hotline, online support groups, wellness education courses, employment advocacy, and therapy referral services.
We also offer team needs assessments, policy reviews, capacity building, professional development workshops, and our copyrighted Ignite Resilience: Indirect Trauma Prevention Program.
For coalitions, activists, and policymakers, we research and evaluate wellness interventions and mobilize grassroots efforts to advocate for healthcare access, pay equity, and more for helping professionals.
Are you passionate about mental health and self-care? Do you want to give back to the helping professionals and community advocates who work everyday to make the world a safer, healthier, and more equitable place? We are always looking for talented, passionate individuals to help us educate organizations, support advocates, and organize for change. Join us!Learn More About Volunteering
