Past the Pandemic: Mental Well-being for You and Your Patients

Series meets Tuesdays (weekly) 12:00 - 1:00 PM MT for eight weeks.


Past the Pandemic: This ECHO series offers health care providers and other staff working in health care settings strategies to navigate, normalize and hold space for worries and experiences during this pandemic. Each session provides helpful, tangible tools in a psychoeducational, didactic format. By understanding stress along a continuum, participants will learn how to manage stress and loss, increase capacity to prevent burnout, elevate connectedness and mindfulness, and promote quality patient care.

The first two sessions are required, as they are foundational to the rest of the series and will introduce language and concepts that will be woven throughout the remaining sessions.  To ensure that registrants have the information from the first two sessions, recordings will be provided upon request if attendance is not possible.  Attendance and presence are encouraged for all sessions, however, as this is an interactive series.

Goal - To recognize signs and symptoms of stress and burnout, prevent impact of stress injury, build competence in responding to stress in the Pandemic, and promote connection with other health care workers during this time.
