Reflective Spaces, Nurses Care: we need care too - Weekly Support Groups for Nurses & Allied Healthcare Workers with Overseas Heritage
About this event
We are continuing to work in partnership with CHSA, a subsidiary of the RCN, to offer a programme of group support sessions for Nurses and Allied Healthcare Workers (incl. Nurses, Midwives, Health Visitors, Health Care Assistants, Physiotherapists & Occupational Therapists) with Overseas Heritage.
The programme kicks off with a webinar on Thursday 3rd February 2022, 1-2pm, where we will introduce the programme, discuss how the facilitated groups will work and provide an opportunity to talk about what participants would like to get out of the programme. The webinar will feature some brilliant guest speakers as well as a couple of our group facilitators.
The weekly support groups, facilitated by trained professionals, will begin on the 14th February, 11am-12.15pm and will run for 9 weeks via Zoom. Participants will be split into smaller groups for these sessions (a maximum of 20 participants) where you will have an opportunity to talk and share your experiences. The aim for the programme is to offer mental wellbeing support as well as a safe space to share experiences with colleagues and our trained facilitators.
On the 10th week (11/4/22) a final group brings all participants back together to share their experiences with the wider group.
