Sep

Join WHO/Europe for a three part webinar series which will explore HOW to implement mental health and psychosocial supports for our health and care workforce:

PART 1: Promoting and protecting the mental well-being of the health and social care workforce; from self-care to dedicated support.

Thursday September 24, 2020 11.00 – 12.30 CET Copenhagen

In the context of the psychological impact of COVID-19 on the health and social care workforce, this webinar will set out a spectrum of practical tools and interventions that can be used by workers or their employers in relation to stress management, psychosocial support and mental health care. The focus will be on how such tools have been rolled out or integrated into the response to COVID-19 outbreaks at local or national level.

PART 2: Employer practices and policies to support the well-being of the health and care workforce.

Thursday October 22, 2020 11.00 – 12.30 CET Copenhagen

This webinar will focus on what employers can do to recognize and address their staff mental health needs early. The webinar will touch on employee assistance programmes, face to face, and telephone services that can be put in place but also the sick leave and return to work policies that might be needed as the health and care workforce experiences increased stress. The focus will be on how such tools have been rolled out or integrated into the response to COVID-19 outbreaks at local or national level

PART 3: Engaging our communities in the well being of the health and care workforce

Thursday November 19, 2020 11.00 – 12.30 CET Copenhagen

Local communities and governments have been playing a key role in supporting the health and care workforce (ie. organizing intersectoral intiatives, transportation/housing accommodations as needed; organizing child care, food services – out of hours support, helping with financial aspect). The focus will be on how such tools have been rolled out or integrated into the response to COVID-19 outbreaks at the local and national level.
