Counselor Awareness Month: Prioritizing Self-Care to Prevent Burnout

Posted by Soberman's Estate on April 26, 2023 at 7:00 AM

April is Counselor Awareness Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Jerry Ehmann, Alin Calini, and Kevin Dalton as well as celebrate and recognize the incredible work done by all counselors. We also want to emphasize the importance of self-care for these mental health professionals. Counselors in these facilities, such as Sobermans’s Estate, face the challenging task of providing support for men dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, addiction, and other mental health issues.
