Resources to support workers in the field
The following question has been sent by Chris of Vergennes in Vermont, USA:
My name is Chris. I found your site when looking for resources to support aid workers in the field. I am looking for materials or trainings on self care, mental health, and providing support for employees working in the field. Is there any where you might direct me?
Thank you in advance for your time. Best, Chris

It seems like attention is finally being paid to this often neglected issue, so I hope we'll see more and more resources appear in the near future.
