A webinar series to support those working on the frontline during Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, study and live, such sudden and drastic changes to our lives and routines can make it stressful. The pandemic particularly placed frontline healthcare and humanitarian professionals under immense and exceptional pressure, putting their physical, mental and social well-being at risk.

To help them and those struggling with their mental wellbeing during the pandemic, the MSc Humanitarian Interventions Distance Learning course has put together a wellbeing portal bringing together a range of internal and external resources for support. As part of the portal the course is also putting together a webinar series to offer live sessions on topics relating to mental wellbeing.

In its first ever seminar, the portal team, invite you to join us on an hour-long session covering issues relating to managing stress in times of crisis. This session will be of particular importance to those working on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic, in addition to, those working in the humanitarian sector working in natural and man-made disaster settings.

The session will cover a general overview of the impact of stress and how we can best manage this both individually and in community.

Register early to avoid disappointment. The virtual event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams
