About this Event

Our online workshop delivered by Bristol Mind will help you to look after yourself and support your staff’s wellbeing.

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has put extraordinary pressure on your care staff and that many are struggling with the effects of the ongoing response. As a care home manager or deputy manager, we know that you care about your staff and may have already developed some initiatives to support their wellbeing.

In partnership with mental health charity Bristol Mind, we hope to build on this with free mental health awareness training to help you further support your staff through a 2.5 hour interactive workshop.

The online workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Looking after ourselves as managers and how we encourage others to do the same in the workplace
  • Starting a sensitive conversation about mental health and well-being
  • Recognising when self or employee getting overly stressed, anxious or low in mood
  • Coping with loss
  • Wellness action plans
  • Signposting to community based services for staff and the wider community
