Chris L. Smetana, AS,FP-C, CCP-C, NRP: No financial relationships to disclose
In this talk, we seek to understand the causes that lead to burnout and how to self-recognize the signs in ourselves and our teammates. Chris, along with his service K9 Portia, share some of their experiences going through burnout and how you can self-recover and hopefully prevent or minimize future occurrences. They hope to bring awareness to the struggles of day-to-day first-line providers and break the stigma of recovering from burnout and asking for help.
With the growing spotlight on mental health among first responders, protect your mental health and well-being while staying balanced.
