This toolkit can be used by psychologists, social workers, counselors, clinic staff, interpreters, outreach workers (promotoras), peer navigators, and other advocates in the community. The content of this toolkit will focus on particular considerations for Hispanic/Latinx mental health professionals working in settings that service Hispanic/Latinx populations, as these providers face additional challenges when taking on the role of cultural and linguistic broker. This self-care toolkit will increase your awareness of the negative consequences of mental health work and will help you plan self-care activities that align with your values and lifestyle. The toolkit also contains resources to help you measure your levels of stress, identify your values, and select self-care activities to prevent burnout.
