We have spoken more recently about the burnout and mental health impact of working in healthcare, but we haven't often looked at its' impact on us, mental health professionals. This talk will define the terms moral injury and burnout, and describe the impact of COVID-19 on our existing poor baseline. It will discuss the barriers getting help in medical culture, include self-stigma, and along with data and some tangible tips, Dr. Gold will discuss her own experience as a burned out burn out expert. 


The activity is designed to help the learner: 

1. Define moral injury and burnout
2. Describe the impact of COVID-19 on the mental of mental health professionals
3. Summarize the culture of healthcare and how that prevents help seeking for mental health needs
4. Detail one story of self-stigma, and tips to thrive in a broken culture.
