On the webinar
During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers were at the frontline of health systems in Europe, putting their own lives and safety at risk. Awareness grew of the need and importance to protect their mental and physical health. The needs of healthcare workers to effectively manage stress and build up resilience are complex and multi-faceted and will change based on the situation.
The webinar will highlight proven effective interventions to protect the mental health of essential healthcare workers. Speakers will elaborate on commitments to support mental health workforce and indicate further required actions.
