Self-Care for Healthcare Professionals
When you work in a health-related field, you are very others-focused. Putting patients' needs before your own, working long hours and having household or other life responsibilities often take priority over taking care of yourself. Mental Health Awareness Month is a time to consider shifting your priorities, or at least carving out some time for self-care. Why? Because in order to most effectively take care of others, first and foremost, you need to take care of yourself.
