Project description
The objective of my study is to identify if an online mentoring program reduces Burnout levels in professionals working in public mental health in remote areas of Chile. My country is characterized by having a very extensive territory (4300 km long), and a very centralized population (we are just over 18 million inhabitants, of which 7 million live in Santiago de Chile, the capital). Young professionals who start their careers in public mental health establishments find themselves in a more difficult situation than colleagues who work in the capital by reducing contact with institutions and colleagues that serve as support in a profession that deals with cases of high complexity and of great emotional demand.
