January NP Insider webinar

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on mental health. To share how we can improve attitudes towards mental illness and promote mental health and well-being, executive members of RNAO’s Nurse Practitioner Interest Group (NPIG) hosted a webinar on Jan. 21. 

Keynote speaker Angela D’Alessio, bilingual stakeholder engagement coordinator for the Canadian Mental Health Association, spoke about BounceBack a free mental health program to help clients manage COVID-19 related anxieties and more, from home. She spoke about the client resources (for new parents, youth 15-18, caregivers, and individuals experiencing chronic pain), real life examples of BounceBack participants, how to refer, and top frequently asked questions. 

In addition, participants heard a quick update from the NPIG executive and other RNAO policy initiatives of interest to NPs.
