For many decades, journalists were expected to be the epitome of toughness. But things have been changing in recent years: Tightening budgets, heavier workloads, increasing digital hate, and even physical attacks are becoming more common, leading to journalists burning out more often. Slowly but surely, more publishers and broadcasters are recognizing this shift and offering programs to support their employees' mental health. Meanwhile, new initiatives, some started by those who've experienced burnout themselves, are trying to tackle this crisis head-on. What's the way forward to ensure that journalists can keep doing their job and staying connected with their audience during tough times?
