Wellbeing Resources and Support for Care and Health Staff in NCL
The Keeping Well NCL Mental Health & Wellbeing Hub will close on 31st August.
Our website remains an excellent source of information. Within the website you will find a broad library of webinars, podcasts, activities, trainings, and information on where to access help. You can filter these by topic, audience or type of resource depending on what you are looking for.
If you need support with a common mental health problem like stress, anxiety, or depression you can self-refer to the NHS talking therapies programme.
If you work in Social Care, speak to your manager or Human Resources department to understand what support might be available to you. Some care home companies offer a range of support services for employees, including access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).
If you work in Primary Care, visit the NCL Training Hub website to find wellbeing resources specifically designed for staff working in GP surgeries, community pharmacies, and NHS funded dental and optometry sites in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.
If you work in an Acute or Mental Health Trust, contact your organisation’s wellbeing team/champion, refer yourself to your organisation’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) or ask your manager to refer you to occupational health. You may find other support options on your organisation’s Intranet.
Visit your GP who can refer or signpost you on to specialist support for a wide range of different difficulties that are affecting your wellbeing.
The price of energy, food and bills are all rising and many of us are feeling worried about our finances. If you feel that your financial situation is impacting your wellbeing, take action as quickly as possible.
There is advice and support available from many sources and some grants available, some of which depend on your circumstances.
Visit this page on our website to find out what is available.
Thoughts about self harm or not wanting to live anymore can be frightening and confusing and can happen to anyone. If you are having a difficult time and are struggling with thoughts like these or you are feeling unsafe, help is available 24/7 from your local NHS Crisis Service. Find your local service on the NHS website.
In a crisis you can also contact your GP and ask for an urgent appointment or call back.
In case of emergency, go to A&E or call 999.
