Your Wellbeing

Whatever your age, background or role, whether you’re on the front line directly caring for patients or in one of the thousands of essential roles our NHS Trusts rely on each and every day, from time to time we all have problems - whether personal, family or work-related.  With this in mind we need to take steps to maintain our physical and mental health and overall wellbeing.


Mind’s information hub provides advice on how to support your mental wellbeing. This includes practical advice on coping with going into work, managing stress, loneliness, tips for keeping your mind healthy, and updates on how the new coronavirus laws could affect your rights.

Mindfulness can have great benefits to your wellbeing as an effective way to relax the body and mind and reduce stress and anxiety.

The vast majority of these apps are free and a great way to start your mindfulness journey.

Our NHS People website also includes some additional apps which you may want to explore.

Accessing Psychological Therapies

GPs are often a gateway to mental health services, particularly for those with more complex needs. However, all geographical regions have depression and anxiety services (often called IAPT) that are self-referral – you do not need to go through the GP. IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) services offer:

  • talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), counselling, other therapies, and guided self-help
  • help for common mental health problems, like anxiety and depression

More information on where to access IAPT services.
