Webinar: Mental Health Support For The Practitioner & The Patient

Unprecedented times have caused any number of people worldwide to struggle with their mental health. With increased levels of stress, loneliness, anxiety and depression during times of crisis, as this pandemic has seen, psychological support is needed whether you are a practitioner or a patient. 


We’ve invited Laura Rosenthal, Mental Health First Aid Instructor for MHFA England, and Owner of MAPS-Training Ltd, to give this highly interactive talk. With practical tools and tips on how to deal with difficulties yourself, and communicate with patients, friends and family who are finding it hard to cope, you won’t want to miss this webinar. Having trained as both a Mental Health First Aid Instructor and an Osteopath, Laura is extremely well-versed on the strains that mental health can have on both the patient and practitioner. She also teaches mental health first aid courses certified by MHFA England on how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. This is pertinent, as some form of mental health first aid training is likely to become mandatory in the workplace in the future.


Assessing the size and costs of the mental health problem in the UK, Laura will be using her wealth of expertise to introduce the huge topic and discuss how we can start to make a change. We will be delving into what mental health is and the impact of COVID-19 on both the patient and the practitioner mentally. Examining the causes, types and qualities of key stress-related mental health issues, including depression and anxiety, we will learn how to spot the signs of such disorders. 


Communication skills are a vital part of being able to support your patients around this sensitive subject. We will be considering the best techniques to help them emotionally and practically and will be looking at the impact of mental health issues on the population both prior to and during COVID-19 from epidemiological surveys. We will also be looking at the lifestyle of a practitioner and understanding ways you can help yourself in your own mental health. Laura will be facilitating interactive group-learning with breakout tasks and providing us with useful take-home resources for all the topics covered and more! 



We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

  • Understand the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on both the patient and the practitioner, and how to identify the key stress related mental health illnesses
