DMH provided DMH CARES (Communicating and Reaching Employees Supportively) webinars during the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity for staff to virtually connect with colleagues, get up-to-date COVID-19 information, hear from senior leadership, and learn about self-care and team-care strategies. These webinars originally started in April 2020 through June 2021 and then restarted in February 2022 through June 2022.
Due to the high demand for these webinars, the Missouri Well-Being Playbook Workgroup is changing DMH CARES from a webinar to a text based micro-learning lesson. These lessons are 60 second videos containing: quotes, quiz questions, memes, GIFs, call to actions, and links to resources.
These lessons will be published by topic once a week and available online as well as on the phone. Individuals can sign up to receive an email or text with the weekly lesson.
