Doctor’s Retreats & Self-care Events

The bottom line: practitioners who cannot care for their own bodies and feelings will be much less able to care for others. The medical and nursing professions are at higher risk of poor mental health and burnout and we want to help healthcare workers understand the origins of health and find time to attend to their own wellbeing and build resilience.

Our programme brings you a range of workshops and courses to promote wellbeing and provide personal and professional development opportunities for students, doctors and other health professionals.

If you run a retreat and would like to co-deliver this with the BHMA, please get in touch.
