From September 1st 2021, the Cheshire and Merseyside Resilience Hub will be offering a range of virtual wellbeing workshops for health & social care staff and managers. These workshops will provide an understanding of what wellbeing means in the context of the Covid19 pandemic, information on common difficulties and self-help techniques to improve and maintain wellbeing.
The meetings will take place using Zoom. The workshops will be interactive but there is no pressure to participate – and you can have your camera on or off as you prefer. Please note, these workshops are educational rather than therapeutic (although we hope you will get some great benefits from them).
If you think you need to access psychological support for yourself, please complete our self referral form to book one-to-one time with one of our psychological staff.
Please click in to each of the workshop titles below to get more details or register.
This workshop is for all staff who are experiencing or wanting to prevent burnout in themselves or their teams.

This workshop is for any staff or managers who want to get a better understanding of how team working can be affected at times of high stress/demands, and some strategies for managing team wellbeing.
As managers, we try to look after everyone else’s needs, and often ‘contain’ a lot of stress or distress for staff teams. This workshop is aimed at helping managers to learn how best to look after themselves while carrying out this challenging role.
The workshop aims to develop an understanding of our emotional and behavioural responses at various stages of the pandemic. It involves group discussion and reflection about managing each stage.
If you would like any pathway support around: Finances, Debt Management, Housing, Physical well-being, Family Caring Roles, Addiction/Substance Misuse, or Social Interactions - please fill in the brief form below with some contact details and our Pathways Advisor will get in touch with you.
