Would you able share the following please... WEM Academy Live Session #6 The Silent Mental Health Pandemic 🗣 Who: Matthew Walton, Esther Murray & Mike Christian (hosted by Eoin Walker) 🗓 When: Friday 29th May 2020 from 18:00 (GMT) ⏰ Length: ~1 hours 30 mins 🎓 CPD: 2 (estimated) ⭐️ Ideal for: Health professionals of all grades, stages and training backgrounds 💵 Price: Only £20 per person* Our upcoming WEM Academy Live Session on Friday 29th May will be a rare and invaluable Q&A session, exploring the devastating mental health pandemic, evolved as a consequence of COVID-19. Our WEM Host, Eoin will be joined by the 3 remarkable authors of a recently published, specialist paper entitled: ‘Mental health care for medical staff and affiliated healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic’ (Walton et al, 2020). The discussion panel will cover the effects on frontline Staff and look more closely at individuals, teams and organisations as they take a deep-dive into the questions posed by their paper. 👉🏼 This is a RARE opportunity; here’s what you can expect: • We invite you to pose your own questions and join the live discussion • What are the true effects on frontline staff, including ‘post traumatic growth’, how we can harness negative experiences to our benefit and how might we offset an incremental rise in PTSD. We'll explore questions such as: ◦ During this pandemic, to what degree has individual self-awareness played a fundamental role in self-care? ◦ What aspects can teams address with barriers they experience around communication, humility and empowerment? ◦ How can we harness the best out of each other through peer support (welfare ambassadors or other peer supporters) and how has debrief (hot or cold) played a part in this support? • For the finale, we'll end with the ‘Big Question’: How can we take the lessons learned into clinical practice and bring the wider community with us at the same time? 📖 Prep yourself! Read the FULL paper here for FREE > bit.ly/TheSilentPandemic Then get ‘in the room’ with Matt, Esther, Mike and Eoin to discuss, debate, question, learn and most importantly enjoy! 🛎 Book your place today > bit.ly/AcademyLiveSession6a --------------------------------------- *Pricing is for the Live Session, if you are unable to attend, the recording will be available to buy for only £14 (unless you booked but couldn't make it, in which case it will be sent to you after the session). --------------------------------------- Walton, M., Murray, E. and Christian, M.
