How do you cope as a psychologist that works with people that have mental disorders?

Coping: Most psychologist truly love what they do and get a sense of great satisfaction and accomplishment helping others with mental illness. This helps a lot. However, in times when the going gets tough psychologists seek consultation from colleagues or go to therapy themselves.
