When it comes to mental health, we ALL have a story - especially those who provide care to loved ones balancing their mental wellness. Joining the podcast to discuss this very important topic is Kristi Horner, Denison, Founder and Executive Director of Courage to Caregivers, whose mission is providing self-care to the caregiver.
May is Mental Health Month and Tri Delta is committed to providing relevant content on this important topic to our members. What we are all experiencing with COVID-19 is trauma, plain and simple. Kristi Horner, Denison, is the Founder and Executive Director of Courage to Caregivers, whose mission is providing self-care to the caregiver. Courage to Caregivers sees itself as the “oxygen mask” in giving care to caregivers. She discusses compassion fatigue and how that leads to caregiver burnout. We cover her “3 For You” tips, including understanding your stress, reframing that stress in order to cope and developing healthy boundaries. Your resilience can be your superpower in caregiving, know you are not alone.
