Health care professionals experience mental health problems too. Long hours, shift work, pressure cooker environments, and the near total focus on the care of others can create severe depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms that impair functioning. Fortunately, there is help for those who help others.
MHS offers an intensive one-day weekly DBT program dedicated to health care professionals, including but not limited to physicians, nurses, and mental and chemical health providers. This supportive, skills-based program teaches mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills necessary to thrive both on and off the job.
Each program day consists of DBT skills training, diary card check-in, and group support and problem-solving designed to work with individual therapy provided at MHS or in the community.
Best of all, those who attend this program will be surrounded by peers who understand the demands of health care professions and who are uniquely able to provide the validation and guidance needed to manage symptoms, improve functioning, and achieve well-being.
