Introducing a new wellbeing resource for the dental teamNews
Posted by: The Probe 18th January 2021
Launched 18th January, the guide Wellbeing Support for the Dental Team has been created for all dental team members, including students and non-clinical roles.
It outlines how to assess your own mental health and wellbeing and provides resources for self-care, including the range of organisations available to support you.
The truth is, as dental professionals, we recognise the importance of mental health and wellbeing for our patients. However, we may not always recognise or prioritise our own mental health needs. Stress is common amongst the dental profession and is a key driver of burnout and mental ill health. These problems can affect individuals at any stage of their career.
For a variety of reasons, there has traditionally been a reluctance amongst the dental profession to speak about and seek support for their personal problems, including mental health.
It is time to put an end to that. There is strength, not weakness, in asking for help, and to that end, Wellbeing Support for the Dental Team, offers simple and practical step to know where you can find the support you need.
