It's a crisis within a crisis

Paov --

It’s a crisis within a crisis. The workplace pressures of working through a global pandemic have seriously impacted the mental health of many front line workers and health care professionals.

Far too many workers cannot access the mental health supports they need. As a result, burnout, resignations and extended leaves of absence are hollowing out the workforce in essential sectors that are already understaffed.

On October 21st, the BC Health Coalition is bringing together a panel of frontline workers for an important discussion about the looming worker mental health crisis, and what we can do to better support workers’ mental health. Will you join this virtual event?

WHAT: Panel discussion: Healthcare and frontline workers’ mental health in the pandemic
WHEN: October 21st, 12:00-1:30pm
WHERE: Online using the Zoom platform https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_x2uwyrjYSuuHrIBfsTIz4w

The discussion will feature workers from health care, community social services, retail, and other sectors sharing their experiences of working on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic and how this is impacting the mental health of workers in their sector.

The panel will discuss the resources, strategies and campaigns already underway to support workers’ mental health, what’s needed to improve resilience for the future, and how public mental health care coverage could improve the lives of all workers.
