Please see below email and attachment from the HSE in relation to some new resources to support health and wellbeing:
You may have seen that the Department of Health and the HSE, in collaboration with key cross-Government and cross-sectoral partners, have developed a mental wellbeing campaign aimed at offering support and resources to help deal with the stress, anxiety and isolation currently experienced by many people during this time which was launched on Saturday.
The ‘Together’ campaign is hosted on gov.ie, points people to the HSE’s Your Mental Health supports and resources which include many online and telephone services, as well as providing tips and advice from cross-Government and Healthy Ireland partners on topics such as physical activity, parenting, coping with daily routines, supporting the ‘cocooned’ and getting involved in the community solidarity efforts.
Please see attached a document outlining the detail of the campaign and the new COVID social branding for this campaign and ways in which you can help support the campaign by sharing key messages.
HSE, Health & Wellbeing are offering a Stress Control Online programme, commencing 13th April 2020, via Stresscontrol.org. This 3 week programme is free of charge to the public and delivered by Dr. Jim White, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Stress Control Ltd. It has never been more important for the public to have evidenced based supports from a trusted source, to help them manage and deal with the range of emotions individuals and families are experiencing at the moment. Please see a briefing note attached with information on how people can access this programme and some suggested messages to help promote the programme to the people you support.
