Why:

1 in 5 adults will struggle with a mental health challenge. Research shows that the sooner someone seeks help, the better the outcome. Similar to our physical health, if we notice a change, we want to follow up with a doctor to prevent a symptom/sign from worsening.

Those who choose a helping profession are at a greater risk of burnout than the rest of the population. Learning to integrate wellness and self-care can act as prevention in your later career.
