The Nursing and Midwifery Health Program Victoria (NMHPV) is holding training sessions for Victorian nurses and midwives to become NMHPV Champions in October.
An NMHPV Champion raises awareness of the organisation and how it can support colleagues. Champions also highlight the experiences that nurses and midwives confront in their roles and challenges the stigma of seeking help.
During the training day, which attracts six CPD points, nurses and midwives will learn about the services NMHPV offers, as well as how to identify colleagues who are struggling and refer them to the NMHPV.
The Nursing and Midwifery Program Victoria is a free, independent and confidential counselling and support service for nurses, midwives, and nursing and midwifery students. The NMHPV is funded by the Andrews Government.
NMHPV CEO Glenn Taylor said: ‘There is no more important time to create awareness of our service and the risks to health and wellbeing of being overwhelmed and over-worked.’
