We know your child’s mental health can affect more than just your child. Are you emotionally and physically exhausted? When a parent or caregiver naturally supports someone going through a significant traumatic event, they can experience Compassion Fatigue. It is often referred to as “the cost of caring”. The October Mental Health Newsletter focuses on Compassion Fatigue which outlines nine signs of compassion fatigue and provides suggested actions you can take to protect your own mind, body, and spirit. Your child’s mental health is important and to continue to help your child, it is important that you are first taking time for your OWN mental health needs so you can be there for your child!
