New bite-sized sessions support colleagues’ emotional wellbeing

Posted on: July 20th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new programme to support the emotional wellbeing of mental health crisis colleagues has been developed by NHS England elearning for healthcare.

The series of six bite-sized sessions, created in partnership with national charity Samaritans and NHS England, provides helpful advice and guidance on how colleagues can support their own and others’ emotional wellbeing.

The sessions cover:

  • Myths about suicide
  • Five levels of listening
  • Recognising and challenging negative thinking traps
  • Setting expectations
  • Support versus solve
  • Building resilience

The elearning was developed to support the mental health crisis workforce but is also aimed at psychological professions, social workers, assistant practitioners, art therapists and occupational therapy support workers.

While the 20-minute sessions can be completed individually, the content also complements and builds on the skills and concepts from the Samaritans Listening Skills & Emotional Health (LS) course delivered for NHS England.
