Support The Workers
“The “Support The Workers” collective is an international group of experts in disaster response, crisis psychology, high pressure decision-making and human performance and health under conditions of extreme stress. They were tasked by those involved in responding to the covid-19 pandemic in the UK to develop a rapid evidence-based training and support curriculum for staff providing psychosocial support to frontline workers.
This work was specifically targeted at psychologists in the NHS (and those being drafted in to provide cover) to help them prepare to work under challenging conditions and equip them with the most up to date evidence-based materials on the behavioural and psychological topics relevant to the virus outbreak. We are sharing the materials we have produced in case they are useful to others in the UK and around the world”

A beautiful thank you to our NHS
