Navigating the complex world of wellness and mental health for emergency responders
19th May 2021 at 19:00 BST
We have never been more aware of the mental health and wellness issues of emergency providers. On an almost daily basis we receive invitations to educational events and information about initiatives to address these issues. The nature and frequency of problems in our community have been reported as alarmingly high and it is reassuring that help is now so more readily available. Although those who volunteer problems have a good range of options available to them there may be a larger group who are vulnerable but do not really want to engage with wellness initiatives. This Webinar will try and get to the bottom of what the scale and nature of the problem that really exists in pre-hospital care and what pre-hospital organisations need to practically have in place to ensure a healthy workforce.
