Healthcare roles are some of the top professions for burnout, mental illness, substance abuse, and suicide. Hospitals have taken the initiative to offer programs which address these with their staff. However, churches have previously failed in addressing the same concerns for those who prefer a faith-based approach. The Healthcare Getaway is made for healthcare workers by healthcare workers. It provides faith-based and theraputic tools to unpack the things that typically need to get bottled up in order to successfully care for others.
This primitive camping weekend will boost your mood and offer space to get away from the unique day-to-day stress of working in healthcare. We aim to connect healthcare workers with God and each other, provide some relief from emotional burnout, and prevent it in the future.
