Healthy Minds is a confidential, free service for you and your immediate family (over the age of 16 and living at the same address). It's there for any challenges that you may face at home or at work, such as health, relationship problems, stress or bereavement. The team can also provide information and support on employment, financial and legal matters.
Talking about a concern can be the first step to turning things around. When you call the Healthy Minds phoneline, you'll speak to someone who's trained to listen and will keep your conversation confidential; we won't tell your manager or anyone else that you've called, unless we think yourself, or someone else, may be at risk and are legally obliged to do so. Should this be the case, we'll do everything we can to talk this through with you first.
If you need more support, up to six telephone or face-to-face counselling sessions can also be arranged.
If you're a people manager dealing with an issue in your team, the Healthy Minds service can provide you with support and advice.
