AJP’s editor will be growing a moustache in November to raise money for the Pharmacists’ Support Service
Pharmacists have been pushed to their limits in 2020, with the Pharmacy Support Services (PSS) seeing a rise in calls throughout the year.
AJP and PSS recently hosted a webinar that addressed the mental wellbeing of pharmacists (click here to see this webinar)
As a sign of our support for PSS and for pharmacists, AJP Editor, Chris Brooker, will be going head-to-head with Pharmacy Daily Editor, Nick O’Donoghue in a Mo Foe ‘Movember’ challenge to raise funds for PSS.
You can show your support for the PSS and the mo-growing journos by donating HERE and tagging your contribution #MoFoePD or #MoFoeAJP.
If you follow AJP on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin, we will be posting regular updates on the state of Chris’s mo.
PSS executive officer, Kay Dunkley said: “The Pharmacists’ Support Service (PSS) is available over the phone every day of the year from 8am to 11pm AEDT on 1300244910 to provide support to all pharmacists, interns and pharmacy students including overseas trained pharmacists seeking registration in Australia.
We have a team of trained volunteers who are all pharmacists or retired pharmacists. They are rostered to provide a listening ear, non-judgemental peer support, information and signposting.
PSS is confidential and anonymous, you do not have to provide your name when you call. We are there to lean on during stressful times, especially if you do not know where to turn for assistance or are feeling isolated from your colleagues and usual supports.
PSS is a not-for-profit charity and welcomes financial support from the broader profession, all donations are tax deductible”.
