As social workers we are constantly working for our clients and ensuring we give them the best care possible. How are you showing up for yourself and caring for yourself? One way to focus long-term on your needs is to be aware of the public student loan forgiveness (PSFL) program. PSLF is a program for people who work in public service in federal, state, tribal, or local government, or for a non-profit organization. If you qualify look into this. Your student loans could be forgiven and if you're doing the hard work anyways, you should also benefit from it. Self care is about more than taking a bath, going for a walk, or reading a book. It is a way of life, which includes planning for your future.
