This mental health recovery series seeks to meet the current moment with its continued uncertainty, exhaustion and other ongoing reverberations of the COVID19 pandemic. The webinar content has been designed in response to issues raised by staff in a variety of organisations over the past six months to provide evidence-based strategies and tools that support ongoing wellbeing and resilience.
All webinars go for one hour and are delivered online with time for questions and answers from participants.
Session 1 |Pandemic Recovery – Managing Stress and Burnout (completed 4 August)
Ongoing stress and anxiety are common experiences impacting many of us right now, but the human body was not built for chronic stress. Chronic stress is implicated in burnout and many other poor physical and mental health outcomes. This workshop is based on polyvagal theory with activities that allow participants to learn to navigate and change their own personal stress responses, ‘hacking’ their nervous systems for increased vitality and better, more intentional stress management.

- ‘Good’ versus ‘bad’ stress
- Anxiety, stress or burnout?
- Nervous system responses and remedies
- Understand how stress impacts wellbeing
- Learn strategies and tools they can individually tailor to
increase their wellbeing for better stress management
