I have concerns about mental health issues for colleagues working on the frontline in the NHS and Care Homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to hear about the role Mindfulness can play in helping ‘traumatised’ workers to come to terms with the anxieties and stresses they have witnessed and worked through. Can working with people via the internet be an effective counselling alternative to traditional sessions in a clinic room?

    My name is Patricio, and I am a Psychologist specialized in HR Management. Through my experience as an executive, I realized that something was missing in any implementation plan of any trend in HR issues. Something did not fit or was incomplete. The dimension of integral well-being, self-knowledge and self-care were not considered. It is what People Management needs to be truly comprehensive.
