This toolkit was designed for individuals, peer supporters, wellness champions, teams, and leaders. Its aim is to provide information and practical tools for self-awareness, personal and team wellness, and organizational planning to meet self-care needs, particularly amid the challenges of disaster response/recovery work and the pandemic. From small steps to strategic wellness plans, this toolkit includes a range of resources to draw from, along with consultation support to assist your teams and organizations with planning and implementing next steps. It provides a broader overview to allow you to adapt the tools to local and organizational needs. The toolkit includes: Evidence-based responder self-care content for individual, team and organizational wellness, Experiential activities for personal reflection, team conversations, and planning, Tips for supporting personal, team, and organizational wellness, Information about available resources and Tools to develop a personal, team and/or organizational self-care plan. During and after stressful events, even more so if events are cumulative, it’s important to recognize that self-care can sometimes be more complex and changeable than simply attending to bubble baths and bedtimes, so to speak. Our hope is that you will draw from the toolkit to develop and sustain your personal and organizational self-care capacity, culture, and well-being—before, during and beyond disaster, emergency and crisis events—to support your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health throughout the important response and recovery work that you do. Considerations for Leaders and Organizations - Self-care and well-being rests within both individual awareness and reflection (including leaders) and team and organizational wellness supports, culture, and innovation. The benefits of leader action and modelling and of workplace and self-care wellness culture are supported in literature. Workplace wellness culture is informed by, and in turn, can support psychological health and safety in the workplace.
