Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin
Message to colleagues from Provost Patrick Prendergast
My job is to be your Provost whatever the circumstances, and I’m no expert in anything to do with healthcare, but I would like to remind all staff working from home to mind themselves. We don’t have to be available 24 hours a day. We do have to switch off to look after our physical and mental health. Based on public health advice from the College Health Service, do find ways to exercise and get fresh air where possible. And do avail of the supports available – there are plenty of these, from the Employee Assistance Programme to videos on the college website.
