National Black Nurses Association and the Black Nurses Association, Miami Celebrate National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2020 with Free Webinar: COVID-19 & Mental Health Consequences

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges and aggravated existing obstacles to mental health care and well-being. There are multifaceted issues surrounding the pandemic and therefore, nurses nationwide are grappling with an elevated level of overall stress and anxiety. This pandemic also threatens to widen existing disparities, particularly the impact on a nurse’s wellbeing. This presentation will highlight and include factors that may exacerbate potential stressors that can lead to detrimental effects on nurses and the community.

The objectives are to:

·    Categorize disparities among vulnerable and poor communities

·    Develop healthy ways to better cope with the stress and anxiety

·    Understand the evidence regarding nurses and suicide

·    Identify and understand PTSD causes and symptoms

·    Apply measures to provide self-care during difficult times

·    Discuss solutions to mitigate the negative impact of COVID-19 on the mental health status of children and adolescents

This webinar is recommended for nurses and practitioners in the public health and mental health fields.

Registration is free and we encourage you to share with your colleagues and professional network.
