This section contains information and links to resources specifically aimed at helping PHC leaders support their staff.
- You will find information to help you to recognize when to be concerned about a staff person, when to reach out and how to provide support.
- You will also find links to PHC policies that speak to staff wellness and help you understand your role and responsibilities when a staff member may be struggling with a mental health issue.
The information found in the Leader's "Self-Care" section builds on that found in the staff section and aims to address self-care issues specific to leaders.
Leaders face unique challenges to their well-being including high levels of stress, numerous demands and increasing (at times competing) responsibilities with dwindling resources. Self-care practices for leaders can result in leaders having more energy, greater productivity, improved work-life balance, and more career satisfaction.
Leaders set the example for self-care among their teams. Attention to your own self-care will keep you vibrant and help to establish self-care as a strong value in our work culture.
