Supporting Frontline Professionals and Caregivers

In the demanding field of public service, stressors are inevitable. From adjusting to the unusual hours and extra shifts, to the trauma of losing patients, to the added layers of uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting frontline professionals and caregivers has never been more important.

You are not alone.

Caring for others requires that you also care for yourself. Sometimes, it may be easy to recognize the signs that you need to talk to someone about how you’re doing. Other times, the extra shifts or the added stressors of your day-to-day may become so routine that you begin to ignore the effects of stress and trauma. It is essential to check in with yourself frequently. Reach out for support if you are experiencing any of these warning signs:

  • Feeling irritable or angry
  • Feeling anxious, depressed, lonely, or constantly sad
  • Reliving traumatic events
  • Isolating yourself or lack of trust in others
  • Struggling to sleep or oversleeping
  • New or increased substance use
  • New or increased physical issues
  • Experiencing compassion fatigue or burnout

 

Sage Neuroscience Center has a new group therapy track for those who are experiencing compassion fatigue. This group is designed to provide support for individuals who provide mental or physical healthcare in the community, such as first responders, healthcare professionals, educators, and caregiving professionals. The group offers space for members to give and receive support and share coping strategies, self-care regimes, and other resources with one another.

Our Compassion Fatigue Support Group meets virtually on Mondays from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. starting December 6, 2021. Contact our Intake Department via phone or complete a New Patient Interest Form to schedule an assessment.
