Grad school, academia, fieldwork, resource extraction, disaster prep & response, journalism, filming crunch, freelancing — all my industries & areas of expertise are ones with a huge toll on mental health.
If you try to power through, you’re setting yourself up to break & need rescue, making the situation harder & more dangerous.
That includes mental health. #BellLetsTalk
But we don’t need to grapple with it alone. #BellLetsTalk
Check in on yourself.
Check in on your community.
It’s ok to need help.
Ask for it when you can.
Offer it when you can.
Take care of yourself & each other.
We’re tiny creatures in a vast universe. It’s ok to be scared, but you’re not alone. #BellLetsTalk
