Mental Health Matters
Our team members face unique challenges and increased demands in health care.
These demands often require us to adjust and cope in stressful clinical and non-clinical events, all while maintaining our commitment to providing the best care our patients and team. Daily, repeated stress, suggests we have an increased priority for social support and mental health and well-being resources so we may receive the help we need when life becomes challenging.
Mental Health Begins with Me | Self-care Tips

Being proactive about your self-care is important for strong mental health. Here are some of the ways you can practice good self-care to help strengthen your Mental Health:


Take Brain Breaks. Take just a few moments each day to put technology away and clear your mind of unnecessary distractions.

Focus on the Present. Try mindful meditation or even just a few minutes of deep breathing to bring you back into the moment.

Exercise or Take a Walk. Exercise not only has physical benefits but also has brain benefits as well. Try going for a brisk walk at least three times a week. Activity is the best medicine!

Eat Healthy. Choose healthy foods, low in sugars and saturated fats that give you energy to do the things you love.

Lean into Faith. Connecting to your higher power can give you strength during challenging times.

Stay Connected to People Who Matter to You. Call, text, or set up a video chat to check in with family and friends.

Get Help When You Need It. Talk to someone you trust or seek out a professional support service. When you can at least talk about your problems with someone you trust, together you can start finding solutions or ways to cope.
