If you need help right now

Health and Wellbeing banner

The Coronavirus outbreak saw life change for us all over the past few years.  The situation may have made you feel more worried, frightened or helpless at times - it's important to remember that it's OK to have these types of feelings, and that everyone reacts differently.

Our bodies and minds are connected, so taking care of our mental health is just as important as protecting our physical health.  

The good news is that there are many simple things we can do to take care of our mental health and wellbeing - visit our main Workforce wellbeing support staff web page for useful information and advice and access to dedicated support routes. 

However, if you need help right now - these support routes are open to you:
