Today, we're launching a new programme of online workshops for health and social care staff to help build personal resilience and enhance their wellbeing.
Working in partnership with NHS Scotland and Scottish Government, these preventative sessions aim to empower participants to self-care and manage stress.
After successfully delivering digital Health at Hand™ sessions to energise staff and alleviate the pressures that frontline staff face in one health board, we will open NHS Scotland’s Focus on Wellbeing programme on Wednesday 17 February 2021, with more than 1100 staff signed up to participate in the opening Restore workshops.
Addressing the physical and mental stress for those working in the NHS and social care services, Scottish Ballet created a series of movement and breath videos. The programme comprises 10-minute videos titled Energise, Rejuvenate, Relaxation (for the start, middle and end of shifts, respectively) and a longer 20-minute Restore session for staff experiencing trauma stressful situations at work.
Our Health at Hand™ programme, launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, won the 2020 Achates Philanthropy Prize for Scotland and the resources are available for everyone to access for free.
