The recent announcement of Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations for NHS Staff is an assault on the legal and human rights of UK workers.
At a time of national mental health crisis, with many NHS therapy services already at overwhelm, the mandates will threaten the jobs of unvaccinated NHS counsellors and psychological therapists, causing significant emotional and financial stress.
The good news is that you don’t have to go through this alone.
Following a successful and supportive workshop in December for NHS psychological therapists and counsellors who are affected by vaccine mandates, T4MF are holding a follow-up workshop at 7.30pm to 9pm on the 26th of January.
You don’t have to have attended the first workshop to attend, and previous participants are welcome. Please note this workshop is for counsellors and psychological therapists only, not wider NHS Staff.
The workshop will give a quick summary of what has changed since the first workshop, and possible routes that can be taken as your next steps. The main focus will be on emotional support, collective processing and using the group as a resource for troubleshooting and advice.
The workshop will include a short presentation, as well as opportunities for connection and dialogue with other group members. We will share valuable resources and suggest practical ways to build a strong support network, so you do not have to go through this difficult process alone.
