RVPHTC: Introducing a Graphic Essay on “Understanding the Public Health Workforce’s COVID-19 Mental Health Challenges”
This webinar is hosted by National Council for Mental Wellbeing
There is a critical need to support the health and mental wellbeing of the public health workforce during a pandemic and national vaccination campaign to prevent high turnover, chronic absenteeism and low productivity and morale. Addressing the identified and significant mental health challenges public health workers experience remains crucial to grow the public health infrastructure and workforce.
Join the Region V Public Health Training Center and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing as we introduce a graphic essay that outlines data recorded from the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) and Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (WINS), on the mental wellbeing and challenges faced by the public health workforce as well as stories and recommendations from colleagues in the field. We will also hear from Joan King, RN, MSN, Senior Consultant at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, who will share practices and resources related to self-care and staff wellness.
