Mental Health Wellness in Dentistry Call to Action

The Dental Professional Alliance (DPA) and partners commit to work together to design, develop, build and maintain a training framework which will encourage members of the dental team to engage in ‘Safe Practice’ when supporting others with mental health wellness issues. The call to action is that each dental workplace should have an identified individual who acts as a ‘Mental Health Wellness Lead and who through a recognised training programme is confident, competent and committed to improving the perception of mental health wellness in the workplace and act as an advocate for ‘Safe Practice’ in early intervention and safe signposting. This will be achieved through the implementation of the mental health wellness training framework.
