NHS Webinars

Place2Be’s programme offers resources and support to help keyworker families during COVID-19.

Place2Be is offering an online programme of expert support and resources to keyworkers, including all NHS colleagues. These resources are available free of charge until 31 December 2020 and have been made possible through charitable donations, coordinated by a group of NHS doctors looking to support the mental health and wellbeing of keyworker children.

The programme consists of:

  • 3 webinars covering: wellbeing and self-care; understanding and managing anxiety in uncertain times; holding supportive conversations.
  • An Art Room resource pack for children and parents/carers to craft and create together. The pack includes stories, instructions and activities exploring the ways in which parents and children can stay connected even when they’re spending more time apart.

Understanding and managing anxiety in uncertain times

We explore the nature of anxiety and how it might impact on you and your family in these uncertain times. The session also includes healthy ways to cope and manage your own worries as well as ideas you can use with children and young people.

Holding supportive conversations: listening with empathy

This webinar explores how to hold supportive conversations about difficult subjects (mental ill health, loss, anxiety, anger, grief). We cover common fears and share techniques to build confidence in your power to support others by listening with empathy; not finding the ‘right’ answer or action.

Wellbeing and Self-care

This webinar explores wellbeing and self-care, reflecting on the psychological and emotional impact of the pandemic. The session shares a framework and ideas to support your own and your families’ wellbeing.
