Mental health support for people in caring professions
Caring is your superpower and can be your kryptonite.
Let me explain:
The world is better off because it has your caring, generous, big-hearted self in it.
Caring is your superpower because it connects you to people so they feel seen, heard and valued. The world needs more people like you.
But caring can also be your kryptonite.
Because when you give so much there's nothing left for you.
Because when you empathise so fully with others it's hard not to take home their emotions.
Because when you're supportive, helpful and want to ease the burden of others you take on more than you have the capacity for.
Because your caring can lead to exhaustion, overwhelm, resentment and burn out.
Which means you can’t live the life you want and deserve, and you can’t show up for others as you want either.
Here’s the thing:
Taking care of your mental health is not selfish, a sign of weakness or for when you have more time.
It’s essential so that you can live true to your nature and your values, so that you can be the caring person you are and want to be without sacrificing your own energy, health or wellbeing
And you're not the only one who benefits because everyone around you – your loved ones and those you work with – will feel the benefits too.
This why I developed the Overcome Overwhelm Toolkit for People in Caring Professions.
It has been created to support the mental health of those working in caring professions such as healthcare, education, veterinary, social care, emergency services and charities.
The online Toolkit is available to you 24/7 and you can pick from the menu what you need help with, when you need it, so within a few minutes you’ll be equipped with tools to help you feel calmer, less stressed and more in control.
All the content is available to read or listen to, and there’s nearly three hours-worth broken down into less than 10mins-long bitesize chunks, so you can consume it in the way that works best for you.
The Overcome Overwhelm Toolkit is organised and designed in a way that ensures you will easily use and benefit from all the information, strategies and tools available to you.
You don’t need to set aside a chunk of time, you don’t need to make a phone call or send an email. The digital Toolkit is with you 24/7 (via mobile, tablet or computer) and you can read or listen to what you need at whatever time of day you need it.
The Toolkit is packed with everything you and your colleagues need to bring down your overwhelm, handle challenges and change, feel back in control, support yourselves and move forward with calm confidence.
