Lived Experience Healthcare Staff: Balancing in Exceptional Times
Thinking of staff members who are:
🌟Ready to pay forward their lived experience of navigating crises/trauma
🌟Balancing capacity to help/work with the importance of having energy for recovery
🌟Discovering new triggering in these exceptional times.
🧡 ALL THIS IS UNDERSTANDABLE 🧡
The #in2gr8mentalhealth logo is based on the Yin Yang symbol. It is about that human endeavour to find a balance between the different parts of ourselves that we all have, the more and the less shadowy.
Extrapolated, it is how we as healthcare professionals balance our care for ourselves and our care for others, our lived and our trained identities in mental health.
In current Covid19 times, health systems around us must understand that we are humans first.
