COVID-19 has tested us more than any other event in our recent history - and has had an impact on the way we hire, coach, and manage our teams. One year into our pandemic response, the level of compassion fatigue and burnout is high for those on the front line. In this session, we will talk about the Community of Care framework and psychological supports we put in place to ensure our teams could continue to be there for the people of Ontario long into the recovery from COVID-19.

Objectives:

• Understand the varying mental health needs of front-line staff and their supervisors in a remote working environment, and some of the reasons staff are hesitant to reach out
• Take away some of the key learnings and feedback from staff on our journey thus far
• Learn how leaders can support the wellbeing of staff at all levels through example
