An important part of our mental health is self-care. Our CHWs represent our communities' agricultural workers, refugees and undocumented people. Their needs are endless, and our efforts to support our communities is overwhelmed and most of the time frustrated. This is for all social and environmental barrier we have to face to advocate for those who do not have a voice. Therefore, CHWCM have some programs dedicated to our self-care. Here are some of our self-care programs.
Self-care has been defined as the process of taking care of oneself with behaviors that promote health and active management of illness when it occurs.
The self-care movement in ancient Greece, and care are of oneself and loved ones has been shown to exist since human beings appeared on earth. Self-care remains a primary form of healthcare worldwide.
All our us need to belong and connect with a social group. It gives us the sense of belonging.
Maintaining healthy social connections with friends and family yields many emotional and psychological benefits. It’s vital for combating loneliness, dealing with stress, and just having fun! These are all essential for seeing you through difficult times and also staying in touch with the light-hearted parts of your life.
