For mental health providers, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought additional challenges to already challenging work. With rapid changes in service delivery, longer hours, and the increased need for services to treat clients struggling with COVID-19-related anxiety, stress, depression, and grief, practitioner self-care and well-being is more important than ever. 

The Great Lakes MHTTC Provider Wellbeing Supplement provides training, education, and technical assistance to mental health practitioners in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, an WI. The unique focus of the Wellbeing Supplement is mental health provider and practitioner well-being, mental health, and selfcare.

Organizational Well-Being Symposium, August 2021

Organizations must play a role in evaluating and addressing the conditions influencing their employees’ well-being. To address this need, in August 2021, the MHTTC Network hosted Organizational Well-Being in Health Care: A National Symposium, a free two-day event during which national leaders shared the latest innovations and research in this area.

The webinar recordings and resources from this convention are available. At your convenience, you can learn how health care organizations can benefit from investing in these values and walk away with practical measures your organization can implement at various levels, especially with administrative buy-in.
