Mental health hubs are available to all healthcare staff

As a healthcare professional, your day-to-day life is centred around helping others but sometimes this can lead to staff neglecting their own wellbeing. That’s why the NHS has launched mental health and wellbeing hubs for healthcare professionals across the UK. The service offers everything from free therapy sessions, to support for those who have experienced a traumatic event.

 

This #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth, we thought we would raise awareness about these hubs, carry on reading to find out how to access these online hubs and more about the type of help available.

Key benefits? 

 

Here’s a few reasons you might consider accessing the hubs:

The service is completely separate from your organisation and they will not be notified if you choose to access the hubs. Visit the NHS website to find out more.

Access to the hubs is completely free of charge for all healthcare professionals. If you have a colleague who you think would benefit, you can also refer them (with permission).

Whether you’re a community nurse, or a full time occupational therapist, the hubs are available to everyone who works for the NHS. 

 

  • Offers a wealth of resources
