Episode 13: Self-care in the Struggle

Special Edition for Annual Homelessness Memorial Day in Collaboration with the National Health Care for the Homeless Council

We welcome special guest podcaster Dr. Barbara DiPietro, the Senior Director of Policy for the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, for a discussion on self-care in the face of the many issues facing us and those we serve. 2017 has seen many threats of funding cuts, repeal of Medicaid Expansion, numerous revelations of sexual assault and harassment, and a rise in explicit racism and bigotry.  In this atmosphere, we continue to do our best to provide our clients, students, and patients the best services possible. In this episode, we will discuss some of the challenges to our own mental and physical health and some strategies to keep ourselves healthy and energized for the challenges in the coming year.
