Self-Care for Museum Professionals  Self-Care for Parents  Self-Care for Kids + Teens


We understand that in order to help make the necessary changes we need to see happen within our own institutions and within the greater museum field as a whole, we not only need to look inwards at ourselves, but we need to address and support the psychological and emotional needs of our staff and colleagues.

To help you and museum professionals take the necessary steps to maintain a strong, central well-being, both inside and outside of work, we have put together the following list of resources and tools.
