2020 has been a year of challenges- and it’s not going to be over anytime soon. But life is like that anyway isn’t it? When you can’t stop the waves, you need to learn how to swim and this workshop will help you to develop resilience and identify when you are stressed, and when you need help.
Alix Sheppard has worked in public health for 20+years, specialising in the development and delivery of community wellbeing programmes at local, regional and national level. In 2007 she developed the Youth Health Champion programme for the Royal Society of Public Health, a peer education programme for schools, colleges and universities, the focus of which has been improving mental wellbeing in recent years. Currently her work is focused around the development of “emotional wellbeing toolkits” for young people and frontline workers to help them develop resilience during the Covid pandemic. While the majority of her teaching is for the senior NHS professional workforce, she also facilitates programmes for schools and guest lectures at several universities.
