Like most people, health professionals experience illness and have family obligations and other commitments outside their professional lives that can affect their mental health. Unlike most people, however, health professionals are also exposed to a particular mix of occupational pressures that can pose additional risks to their mental well-being. Rates of poor mental health in health professionals appear to be increasing in response to rising demands, staffing shortages and diminishing resources. In addition, mental health stresses have been rising during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During this webinar the World Health Professions Alliance are bringing together a range of experts in mental health and the workforce to better understand what the issues are and how we can all work together to support our workforce and look after ourselves.
