Thoughts on Burnout

Battling Burnout in the Mental Health Workplace

There’s much discussion these days about burnout, particularly among physicians and psychiatrists. Medscape and the American Psychiatric Association recently published and discussed a survey indicating 40% of MDs are experiencing some level of burnout.

It’s safe to say that this problem is not limited to doctors. It’s common for people at all levels in the field of mental health to have had feelings of burnout from time to time.

The complexities of the helping field only complicate a profession that requires you to be emotionally present on a daily basis. The challenges of bureaucracy and paperwork only make matters worse.

Self-care and maintaining a healthy work culture with empathy are essential to alleviating burnout in your team.

Helping you manage bureaucracy and paperwork is our small contribution to alleviating this problem.
