HSABC Webinar:Improving & Maintaining Your Mental Health During Challenging Times

December 13, 2022, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

You have heard about burnout.  You likely have felt it too.  Working in the homelessness sector is challenging at the best of times- and during the past 3 years even more so.  What can you do to help buffer the effects of so many demands and stressors?

By the end of this session, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the interplay of stressors and protective factors and the effect they can have on anyone’s mental health
  • Identify practical strategies you can apply to your daily life to cope with stressors, including times where client needs and/or job tasks can feel overwhelming
  • Practice and experiment with using some of these strategies directly during the session
