An interactive, collaborative session that introduces the concept and importance of self-care as a basis for both personal and professional success. Participants will walk away with an understanding of the importance and necessity of self-care and the ability to identify areas of improvement in one’s own self-care while recognizing different techniques and habits to develop a well-balanced lifestyle.

This session is offered through the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center, part of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The Johnson Depression Center’s mission is to improve the lives of people with depression and mood disorders through clinical excellence, innovative research, community programs, and education.
