Nurse & Midwife Support
You may already know about Nurse & Midwife Support (NM Support) – the national, 24/7, free and confidential helpline staffed by nurses and midwives, for nurses, midwives and students.
Our contact details are 1800 667 877 https://www.nmsupport.org.au/
If you haven’t met me I’m the Stakeholder Engagement Manager with Nurse & Midwife Support. I’d like to share some important information with you:
· new video: see the help we provide to nurses and midwives across the country - https://www.nmsupport.org.au/about-us
· since March 2017 we have supported many nurses, midwives and students
· help spread the word: Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (NMSupportAU) and order promotional materials today
Please share this information with you teams and colleagues – the more people we can help the better.
Over the last 16 months nurses, midwives and students have contacted NM Support about workplace issues including stress, bullying, harassment, burnout and drug or alcohol concerns. Physical health and mental health problems were also a concern for callers. Some callers phoned the service seeking support while they were undergoing an AHPRA notification process.
Improving and maintaining the health of nurses and midwives is a key priority for NM Support. We all experience our own health issues or difficulties at times and our team is here to support any nurse, midwife or student with any issue they may have.
Our aim in 2018 is that every nurse, midwife and student knows about NM Support and has put our number in their phone so that it is accessible when and if they need it – 1800 667 877.
