Self-Care Series

The past few years have been tough, personally and professionally. Dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, a national reckoning on racism, emerging health inequities, ongoing gun violence and other issues have impacted our mental and physical health. At our 2020 Annual Conference, Safe States offered abbreviated self-care sessions, providing attendees with a few moments to “breathe” and learn new ways to take care of ourselves. Building upon that, we offered an 8-week self-care series in 2021 to IVP professionals to again bring focus and attention to our mental and physical health. Our work is comprised of discussing serious issues such as violent deaths, suicides, and RX drug overdoses, and to the additional attention and energy we have dedicated to supplemental COVID-19 duties takes a toll on us all.
