Because of the stress we have all been under in the past year, this is a good time to take stock of your mental health. I want to provide information that may help you or someone you love. Beyond the statistics, facts, and helpful tips, this is intended to encourage a pause. A moment for you to assess where you are internally, not necessarily the person you depict to the outside world. I encourage you to take some time for self-reflection.
If you can take away anything from reading this, I would encourage you to lean into vulnerability. Take account of where you are and where you want to be. Aim for a wholesome version of yourself with balance in your work and your personal life.
Remember, you are not alone in this journey called life. Our hospital has many resources, and if you need support or help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. It is time to break the stigma.
