Guest: Sabrina Moosa of Kerry’s Place Autism Services

We are all multi-dimensional as developmental services workers. We don’t want to bring our stress from work into our homelife, and we don’t want to bring stress from our homelife into our work! We bring our own communities with us to our work – and this week’s episode we have discussion about mental health, and how we are human in our work! Sabrina discusses her passion for bringing wellbeing skills to her community as a South Asian woman with family from Pakistan, as well as her work in developmental services. Sabrina shares some details about what aspects of mental health interest her. Sabrina also speaks as a front line worker about how much she appreciates the pandemic pay to help her get through the 12 hour pandemic group home shifts with no days off. We all hope that pay increase continues after the pandemic! Developmental staff are worth it!
