At Sage Clinics, we recognize the distinctive challenges inherent in international development and humanitarian aid, which can significantly impact the mental and emotional well-being of the professionals who have dedicated themselves to this field. Research indicates that individuals in these roles are often high achievers with exacting standards and a profound sense of mission, but who also experience mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, burnout, and PTSD at a far higher rate than the general population. Often, however, the most substantial hurdle these individuals face is their ability to seek professional support. Many have trouble accessing highly specialized services that understand the contexts they work in, and are so deeply engrossed in caring for others that they neglect their own well-being.
Our specialized program is dedicated to providing essential support to these individuals, helping them navigate the demands of their vital roles while fostering resilience and well-being through psychological and medical support.
At Sage Clinics, our program is led by experienced professionals who understand the unique challenges faced by international development professionals and humanitarian aid workers. Our approach can be carried out in person or via secure teleconferencing and typically includes:
