WELLBEING OF THE PROFESSIONAL
IMPROVED HEALTHCARE SERVICES
The project seeks to improve the psychological comfort of mental health professionals by augmenting their personal stress management skills. At the same time, the training program developed by the Be Mindful project experts will contribute to the professional development of the latter, preparing them to apply midfulness techniques directly with patients with mental illness.
The benefit for the patients will be twofold, on one hand, they will be attended by healthcare professionals in optimal emotional condition which will increase the quality of the care provided. On the other hand, subsequent application of mindfulness techniques by mental health professionals with their patients will help the latter to exercise control over the stress and anxiety related to their illness.
