How Do You Know It's Time to Go to Therapy for Yourself?

Welcome back! This week it's time to get real about help for the helpers. It's essential we have our turn to access support, intervention, wellness - the work. It's also sometimes difficult to surmount an array of barriers deterring us from our own turn on the couch. Healthcare costs, stigma, and other tricky waters must be forged to get our needs met. So let's take a look at what it takes to do and be the work as the client. We're so glad you're here.

A few FYIs:

-we swear sometimes; this is an uncensored show full of our personal opinions.

And remember, we're not YOUR helpers. Everything here is personal opinion, not intended as professional advice. Get the help you need, when you need it, where you need it. Here are a few resources for mental health support for you and those you love:

About the Podcast

Being the Work
Getting real about the lives of mental health professionals
Conversations with therapists, for therapists courageously cracking into our unspoken experiences. We seek to put voice to taboo topics in the helping professions, deepen our connections to each other, and ask the difficult questions of what it is to be fully human and a helper at the same time.
