Sometimes it helps just having a peer to listen. Other times, having professional mental health support is essential.
In spite of this, many health care professionals are reluctant to reach out for professional support. It may be due to concerns over what a colleague might think, or even because of a potential risk to their medical license. When you work hard to support the health of other people, it may be difficult to accept that you need support too.
However, everyone needs support sometimes. As accustomed as you may be to the demands of your job, there are many aspects of your work that can have a negative impact. When other forms of self-care and support aren’t enough, professional support can help.
Professional support that protects your privacy is available, and your mental well-being is important. You can access these services without concern for your career, and they are staffed with culturally-competent professionals – people who understand your line of work. Find the one that is right for you.
You can also contact the NAMI HelpLine Monday through Friday between 10 am and 10 pm ET at 800-950-NAMI (6264) to access confidential support and resource referrals.
