Topic: Self-Care???? Who has time for that?

Session description: The term “self-care” has been trending recently on social media, however, it is a concept that mental health professionals have promoted for quite some time. Although research does support the benefits of self-care, most people feel ill-equipped to meaningfully engage in this practice. This session will focus on dispelling myths regarding self-care, provide strategies for self-care while in graduate school, and considerations for post-graduation.
