Clinician burnout is a biopsychosocial condition that has negative consequences on work performance and personal well-being. The purpose of this research was to identify relationships between clinician burnout and self-care activities offered on-site at outpatient community mental health (CMH) agencies, in addition to recognizing novel activities currently practiced. A regression analysis was conducted to identify relationships between the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) subscales and the Self-Care Survey created for this study. Twenty-two outpatient CMH agencies in Washington State were visited during scheduled team meetings to collect questionnaire data on-site in a group setting. 250 clinicians participated in surveys, but 190 surveys were included in statistical analysis due to missing data points. MBI emotional exhaustion (EE) was inversely correlated with the Self-Care Survey score along with clinical experience in years. MBI depersonalization (DP) was inversely correlated with the Self-Care Survey score. MBI personal accomplishment (PA) had a direct correlation to Self-Care Survey score in addition to clinical experience. Positive feedback from a supervisor and team celebrations were self-care activities inversely correlated with MBI-EE. Emotional support from coworkers was inversely related to MBI-DP. Self-reported innovative selfcare activities were explored and described in the literature. Further research is recommended to focus on particular activities, identify sufficient agency time optimal for self-care, examine safety training, and to repeat the research on a wider scale.
