CW: Suicide, Depression, Compassion Fatigue.
Compassion fatigue and burnout are very common in the veterinary, training, and shelter industry among many others. We need to advocate and care for ourselves the same way we do for the animals we work with. YOU MATTER!
We all need to take care of each other, compassion fatigue and burnout are difficult to go through alone. Please reach out to someone and if you are being reached out to, don't ignore. You are not alone!
I talk to Dr. Breedlove about compassion fatigue and burnout in this episode. We talk about what it is, its symptoms, and techniques on how to combat them including compassion and resilience. Tabitha shares her experiences with compassion fatigue and what has helped her.
