We are #inthistogether: supporting mental health in healthcare *WEBINAR*
May 27 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
A Quality Innovation Performance Webinar
Since the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world particularly those of our frontline healthcare workers.
Supporting positive mental health and wellness within any workplace is essential. Within healthcare, a large majority of healthcare providers treat or refer patients to specialists for mental health conditions on a daily basis and yet a number of healthcare professionals are unfortunately suffering themselves.
According to Beyond Blue ‘evidence suggests health professionals are at greater risk of experiencing anxiety, depression and suicide. Risk factors in the workplace include heavy workloads, long working hours, shift work, bullying, harassment, occupational violence, and home/work stress’.
With a number of challenges faced by all members of the healthcare community, this webinar aims to identify ways to support the creation of a mentally healthy workplace and identifies professional resources available to support those who may be suffering from mental health.
If you or your team requires urgent support contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636.
This QIP webinar is open to all healthcare workers to help support them through COVID-19. Register today as places are limited.
