Join C3 and experts for a free evening webinar to discuss the role of mental health in wellbeing and the importance of prioritising nurses’ own mental health and that of their patients.
The webinar will be streamed live via Zoom Webinars and will take place on Thursday 19 September 2019 at 8-8.45pm.
Why mental health?
We know that cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and respiratory diseases commonly co-occur with common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety disorders. In addition, risk factors for non-communicable diseases such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and harmful alcohol use commonly cluster in people with mental disorders. C3’s work has shown that when clinical staff learn more about their own health, then it will have a direct positive effect on the care they give to patients.
Nurses play a key role in delivering person-centred care in all parts of the NHS and are the largest clinical workforce; developing accessible education and training programmes specifically for them has an important impact on patient care.
C3 Collaborating for Health is a health charity aimed at preventing chronic disease nationally and globally. Through its NURSING YOU programme, C3 has spoken with over 450 nurses who have made it clear: it’s hard to look after ourselves when we’re so focused on caring for our patients.
