With a global pandemic still simmering, an economy struggling to right itself, and conflict erupting at home and abroad, it’s clear that we all must prioritize our mental well-being. That's especially true if you're seeking a job, which can often be a taxing and unpredictable process – but even those in stable positions can be at risk for issues like burnout, particularly in the purpose-driven sector.

In fact, new research shows that 4 in 10 U.S. workers report that their mental health is in decline and that they are putting off health care measures for it. If that’s you, we hope you’ll gain a better understanding of your condition, and some tactics for bettering it, in the list of resources below.
