Uplifting our Direct Care Workers Community
January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
CMHA is joining MDHHS and the Stay Well team in inviting you and the direct care workers on your staff to a webinar designed to provide resources and support to direct care workers as they deal with the Coronavirus pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life dramatically for many direct care workers, creating anxiety, depression, and symptoms of emotional distress some have never experienced before. How can we help these valuable team members manage these feelings and regain hope?
The webinar will consist of a presentation followed by an interactive discussion. You will learn:
How to recognize and address normal symptoms of emotional distress
What is burnout, compassion fatigue, and how to reduce these symptoms
How anyone can get free, confidential emotional support from trained crisis counselors
Where to find helpful brochures, videos, and other support services
HOW TO CONNECT: Follow the unique link emailed to you after registration
PRESENTER: Erin Wallace, CDP, Outreach Specialist, Stay Well grant program
After the presentation, we invite you to share your experiences and ask questions.
This Stay Well webinar is brought to you by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services with grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
