Social aid workers are mostly exposed to events that are related to the cause of mental health issues such as depression, burnout and anxiety. But progressivly, work stress including ground work, extremely heavy workloads, long hours and litlle time for self-care are being highlighted as major causes.
“The mission of the World Federation for Mental Health is to promote the advancement of mental health awareness, prevention of mental disorders, advocacy, and best practice recovery focused interventions worldwide”
Reboot is recognizing the importance of ensuring the wellbeing and safety of social workers and volunteers.
According to a study (Dunkley, 2018) only 20% of aid workers felt that adequate psychosocial support was available to them.
Perceived stigma around mental health, leads many social aid workers to continue working without seeking anykind of help.
To reduce stress, burnout and to promote the wellbeing of the workers and the volunteers, Reboot has put in place simple and cost effective interventions. Reboot Wellness is not only a holistic well-being mental health organization, it also provides to devote more attention to improving mental health in non- profit organizations.
