Time to Reflect with Mind Matters
The RCVS Mind Matters Initiative (MMI) will be holding a series of free online ‘Reflection Time’ sessions over the coming months. These facilitated sessions aim to help veterinary professionals reflect on the emotional aspects of their work in a safe, confidential online space.
The series will be facilitated by Mind Matters Manager Lisa Quigley and each monthly theme will have afternoon and evening sessions (taking place 12.30pm to 1.30pm and 7.30pm to 8.30pm respectively) to ensure that it can be accessed by people with different working and/or caring responsibilities.
The themes and timings for the webinars are as follows:
- Support from my team – Wednesday 29 July
- Everyday leadership –20th and 27th of August
- Juggling it all – 17th and 24th of September
- A lesson learned – 22nd and 29th of October
- Believing in myself – 19th and 26th of November
The Mind Matters Initiative (MMI) aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of those in the veterinary team, including students, veterinary nurses, veterinary surgeons and practice managers. MMI was launched in 2015 and is funded and run by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), the regulatory body for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses in the UK.
