We ran a 'Taking care of you' campaign to support emergency department (ED) staff with their mental health and to encourage leaders in the emergency services to do so too.
You can find some more information about the campaign below including key messages, recommendations and resources below. You can share these with colleagues in the emergency services. You may also like to use some of our most effective tools, according to our evaluation, including the 'Going home checklist', 'Breathing window' and the '90 seconds stress scan'.
Our research partner, Revealing Reality conducted an initial scoping exercise to better understand the specific pressures or problems that cause poor mental health in the ED and what kinds of intervention would (or wouldn't) work – you can read their findings here.
We also asked them to conduct an evaluation of our campaign – read the full report here.
