*Free Course Presented by Dr. Brenda Butterfield!*

Caregiving for someone with a mental illness or a dual diagnosis requires a lot of time and energy. Often it comes with ongoing stress and worry about “what might happen next.” Over time, the chronic stress of caregiving can lead to exhaustion and eventually fatigue. It takes a toll on our overall health and well-being. Learning how to manage chronic stress experienced by caring for a child, adolescent, or family member is necessary to support our well-being. Developing an Essential-Self Care Practice can help us learn to do just that.

As a caregiver, we must be adequately prepared, resourced, and supported to ensure family health and well-being is sustained over time.

IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU’LL EXPLORE WHY IT’S SO HARD TO CARE FOR ONESELF AND LEARN WAYS TO OVERCOME THE RESISTANCE TO SELFCARE. YOU’LL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRIVATELY ASSESS YOUR CURRENT LEVEL OF SELFCARE, IDENTIFY WHERE YOUR GAPS ARE AND LEARN MINDFUL PRACTICES THAT CAN BE USED ON A DAILY BASIS TO IMPROVE YOUR PRACTICE OF SELF-CARE
