Tips and techniques for emergency department staff

Taking Care of You is a pilot project run by Mind for ED staff. Our research shows that the challenges you face while working in ED can have an impact on your mental health. Taking time to look after yourself can easily fall down the list of priorities.

To help you manage pressure at work we’ve compiled a guide of proven easy techniques to use before, during and after your shift. We developed it in collaboration with ED staff, and with help from experts in coping with highly-demanding roles, from the military to elite athletes.
