As the world continues to face the challenge of the Coronavirus pandemic, Strongheart is volunteering with two fantastic initiatives that offer free counselling and therapy to those on the frontline of Covid-19.
Frontline19 is a UK nationwide service delivering emotional support, including free therapy, to frontline workers. Doctors, nurses, auxiliary staff, paramedics, ambulance drivers, midwives, social workers, care home staff, firefighters and police officers are all able to benefit from the scheme.
A separate initiative from the therapist-matching platform, Welldoing, similarly enables NHS workers throughout the UK to access free online counselling sessions.
The mental health of NHS workers has been described, by many, as 'at a tipping point'. At a time when the additional pressures of the Covid-19 response only add to the struggles of this workforce, Strongheart Counselling & Training is proud to be able to join with fellow professionals in providing support at this difficult time.
