Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub
We know that staff are having to work in extremely challenging circumstances. Staff wellbeing is our priority across the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, and people can and should expect support for their mental health and wellbeing from their line manager and their organisation.
If you work in a health and care environment, and are experiencing feelings that are difficult to cope with, our mental health workers are here to support you now and find the extra help that is right for you.
The service is completely confidential, wherever you work, and offers advice and support that can help with a range of issues.
