The Ithemba Foundation

#Caring4OurCarers

This resource page was developed through Ithemba’s #CS4D campaign, as it was clear that healthcare workers face an immense mental health burden themselves. Especially medical doctors face what is termed an “occupational hazard”, namely that more doctors than any other profession die of suicide. The fact that doctors and their colleagues in healthcare cannot show their suffering because they need to care for others is a hugely contributing factor.

Hence, since Ithemba’s first #CS4D campaign we promoted the concept of #Caring4OurCarers. If you as a health worker need help, irrespective of in which area or on what level you are the “carer”, please access help in time. By doing that, you will help break the stigma and the silence through empowerment and access to help.
