Mental Wellbeing Sources of Help

Wellbeing words

Are you suffering from the symptoms of stress or mental health issues?
Are you concerned about a colleague?
Are you a manager or supervisor who is worried about a member of your team?

People are often embarrassed to admit that they have a problem feeling like they are the only one.  It is estimated by the  mental Health Foundation that 1 in 6 people will have experienced a common mental health problem in the past week.

There are places where you can find help either for yourself or to help you to support a colleague.

Here you will find a self-assessment tool. The tool, ‘Check Your Mood’, is a simple series of questions about how you have been feeling.  The tool will use your answers to direct you to sources of help. These resources should enable you to understand how you are feeling and offer help and tools to help you to help yourself.

Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure, and pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope.

A bit of stress is normal and can help push you to do something new or difficult, but too much stress can take its toll.
