  • I also agree that it is our responsibility to ensure that we are physically and mentally healthy. This career is very stressful and can take a toll on our bodies and mental health. We need the outlets outside of work to maintain that mental health. It does help that my agency does provide outside programs and resources at no cost to its employees.

  • I have to agree that it is the responsibility of the individual as well as the agency to ensure the members are physically and mentally sound as well as managing their stress and fatigue levels. The agency can increase these areas by promoting wellness and setting the example as well as providing the proper training and resources for their members. The individuals have to be self-aware and have the determination to improve their mental and physical wellbeing. It is very important for a balanced professional and personal lifestyle (Harrington, 2017).
