Throughout the world, healthcare workers are on the frontline fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. They are working in conditions, which place significant personal risk to their physical and mental health, while ensuring our communities receive the care they need. They form the backbone and the frontline of our healthcare response.
As the COVID-19 pandemic takes its toll on South Africa, healthcare workers at the frontline, while committed to fighting this disease and saving as many lives as possible, do not know if their health would be safeguarded.
Join a panel of expert clinicians and organisations for an online Press Briefing on Wednesday, the 3rd June, from 10am – 11:30am for the launch of the Healthcare Workers Care Network (HWCN). The panel of experts will discuss the mental health of healthcare workers in South Africa, share recent South African research findings, launching the new HWCN support services, and healthcare professionals sharing their own experiences during COVID19.
PsySSA will be represented by its Executive Director, Ms Fatima Seedat.
