Managing Your Community's Mental Health: Where's the Line?


Community managers encounter all sorts of people. It is highly probable that many of them will exhibit personality vulnerabilities and mental health issues. They may be faced with challenging behaviors, or even become surrogate therapists. This talk, led by psychiatric clinician Dr. Jennifer Hazel (founder of CheckPoint), will explore some of the common ways that personality disorders and mental health issues may confront community managers. It will then discuss how to feel confident setting boundaries, and cover important advice for self-care when dealing with emotional labor.
