Healthcare Worker Resources

Whether you work in long-term care, home and community care, or community social services, your mental health is a priority. While you are helping to keep our communities strong, we are here to provide quick and easy resources to support your mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Burnout

If you’re emotionally exhausted or feel that you’re unappreciated and overwhelmed even though you continue to work hard, you may be approaching or in burnout.

Taking Care of Me

Our bodies and brains are not designed to be in stress mode all the time. When our stress systems get overworked, we are at increased risk for physical health and mental health problems.

Civility

Serious problems like bullying, harassment, discrimination, and even violence are the extreme end of a lack of civility and respect at work.

Healthcare Leader Resources

If your work involves encouragement, motivation and appreciation to the healthcare workers, here are resources for you to continue promoting and protecting the well-being of those who reflect the quality of patient care, safety, compassion and patient experience.

Mobile Response Team Round Table

The monthly leadership meetings respond to the many challenges those working in long-term care organizations voiced.

Resolving Conflict

No matter what the source of the conflict is, resolution before the situation escalates is essential.

Supporting Staff

It can be helpful for employees to know that you have a plan to address their concerns and support them during difficult times. Your staff are your greatest resource – you can support them
