Mental Health of our Teams
With the nature of their work changing daily and while making huge efforts in serving their members, we must always remember that the key to running a healthy organisation is making sure you keep your staff healthy.
Thanks to our speakers Shuli Greenstein (JewishCare, UK) and Eric Ghozlan (OSE, France) we had the opportunity to see two great examples of dealing with this issue.
The session was coordinated by David Gidron (JDC, Israel).

Organised and co-ordinated by the ECJC / JDC Social Welfare Committee, we invited Education Manager of Jami (UK), Philippa Carr, to discuss the importance of not only taking care of clients but, perhaps more importantly, taking care of Social Workers as Front Liners. A very interesting discussion about the balance between serving and preserving took place and it became clear that one of the most important elements in serving others is to guarantee we are in the best shape to do it.

Using art and words, participants learnt the key features of each tribe and then analyzed their own communities to capitalize on their strengths.
