Mental wellbeing is not a one-size fits all approach.
MAPs offers Online Mindfulness Programs customized for specific professions and populations delivered through self-paced learning modules.
You as a Mental Health Professional are stressed.
And why wouldn't you be?
Let’s face it: being a mental health provider is more stressful than ever before. With the rising mental health crisis, shortage of providers, and overbooked schedules, it’s no wonder that up to 61% of mental health practitioners reported experiencing burnout before COVID-19.1 Since the pandemic, the situation has only worsened, with the demand for virtual therapy and telemental health services growing by a staggering 302%.2
The retirement of Mental Health Professionals is outpacing the rate at which new professionals are entering the field. The increase in demand, combined with an innate draw to help others, has forced many mental health workers to push their personal and professional boundaries by committing more time to their patients and less to their own self-care. Additionally, being constantly exposed to the stressors, traumas, and unfortunate circumstances of others can take a toll on practitioners’ own mental health and result in empathic distress and fatigue.
As a mental health professional, you are committed to caring for others. But are you caring for yourself?
