by Dr. Faith G. Harper
Are you stressed as fuck and you're not sure you can take it anymore? You're not alone. And it's very possible you're experiencing burnout--a legit mental health condition that's usually only regarded as being work-related, but that is 100% absolutely possible for anyone who is chronically stressed and overwhelmed with whatever they're doing in life, from school to parenting to activism to just existing during a pandemic. Dr. Faith gets it, and has been there, and offers an overview of what we understand about burnout and individual as well as relational strategies that really work for getting yourself out of it. Because, sure, sometimes you can fix burnout by taking a day off for self care, but usually it takes a more social-relational-level change--and that is totally possible!
