At this time of year, it is important to draw attention to The National Wellbeing Hub.
The Hub provides a range of self-care and wellbeing resources for all staff, unpaid carers, volunteers and their families to enhance personal resilience and signpost to relevant mental health and support services.
Support can be found here.
The 24/7 National Wellbeing Helpline offers a compassionate and empathic listening service, as well as advice, signposting and onward referral to local services, if required.
Please call 0800 111 4191 at no cost.
The Workforce Specialist Service offers confidential mental health assessment and treatment for regulated health and social care professionals.
Kenneth Gibson MSP said:
“People working in health, social care and social work have continued to provide exemplary care in the most trying of circumstances, saving lives and protecting our NHS at a high cost both personally and professionally.
“Now more than ever, it is critical that those workers look after their own wellbeing, and that of colleagues, and can access support.”
