About this Event

Helping you manage your emotional health and wellbeing whilst looking after others

Join a series of NHS-led webinars focused on supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of health and care workers.

Keeping Well for Health and Care Workers: #4 Sleeping Better

The coronavirus pandemic has seen an increase in the nation’s sleeping difficulties. Research has shown that shift work can cause sleep disturbances and excessive sleepiness. This webinar will look at why we sleep and some of the common sleep difficulties, followed by strategies and tips to overcome these sleeping problems.

The webinar is being led by Emily Gardner, High Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Richmond Wellbeing Service.

The webinar will take place via Teams Live and details will be shared ahead of the event for those who have registered.

Online NHS-led webinars for London

The Keeping Well for Health and Care Workers, has been developed to support the wellbeing of health and social care workers who are faced with the challenges of delivering essential health and care services during COVID-19, whether at the front line or in supporting services.

At this time, it is more vital than ever that you look after yourself, allow yourself to recognise the emotional challenges of your work and ask for support when you need it.

Other resources to support your mental wellbeing

The NHS has developed a range of support for all health and care workers who continue to work tirelessly, whether at the front line or in supporting services.

Health and care workers have access to a range of wellbeing support through one point of contact:

  • A free wellbeing support helpline 0300 131 7000, available from 7.00 am – 11.00 pm seven days a week, providing confidential listening from trained professionals and specialist advice - including coaching, bereavement care, mental health and financial help
  • A 24/7 text alternative to the above helpline - simply text FRONTLINE to 85258

Additionally, London’s digital mental wellbeing service, Good Thinking, has put together information to help you manage any concerns you might have about your mental health during the coronavirus outbreak.

You can also get free access to a number of wellbeing apps such as online peer to peer, team and personal resilience support until the end of December 2020 available through the Our NHS People website.
