Covered in this training video:

We live in a post-Covid, fast-paced, push-button, instant-everything world and those who are called to care for others often feel stretched beyond their margins. This reality increases the risk for stress and burnout at every level: physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally, and even spiritually. People helpers need to understand these factors, develop a personal stress prevention plan, and practice good self-care from a biblical perspective.
