Health and Wellbeing Webinars : Stress, Fatigue and Burnout (Group 1)

Stress, Fatigue and Burnout

After 19 months of sustained, high performance work under unusual pressures, many NHS leaders and teams are feeling overwhelmed, even exhausted. The slip from manageable levels of stress to something more damaging can be so gradual it can easily get missed. This workshop is designed to help prevent this from happening by taking colleagues through the following:

Symptoms:

- What are the symptoms of stress?- When does stress become fatigue?- Measuring stress

Causes:

- External (time constraints, high pressure, high stakes, people etc)

- Internal (the neuroscience, core values, self-esteem)

Solutions:

- Perceptions

- Systems

- Habits

Reset, Reflect and Restart- Health and Wellbeing Webinars

The mental health and wellbeing of our staff is important to us. Growing research demonstrates the importance of mental health and wellbeing in relation to satisfaction and effectiveness at work. Stress, depression, and anxiety are reported as the most common reasons for staff absence. Poor mental health is associated with an increased risk of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes, while good mental health is a known protective factor. Poor physical health also increases the risk of people developing mental health problems.

After 19 months of sustained, high performance work under unusual pressures, many NHS leaders and teams are feeling overwhelmed, even exhausted. The slip from manageable levels of stress to something more damaging can be so gradual it can easily get missed.

Each webinar is designed to address a different aspect of well-being to help you ‘Reset, Reflect and Restart’ after an extremely challenging 18 months. Recovery is very important, but this programme goes beyond simply ‘finding your feet again’. Inevitably, there will be experiences to share, lessons to learn and long-term changes to be implemented in the coming months and years. The aim is to support your recovery whilst also facilitating the process of moving forwards. Further still, these webinars will look at ways to guide and lead your teams and colleagues through the same process.
