Working longer hours in hospitals, community and care homes, seeing friends and colleagues become unwell or being asked to work in unfamiliar areas may have impacted your stress, anxiety or mood. You may have worries about your own or your family’s health and safety. You might be exhausted from juggling the pressures of home life and childcare, social isolation and the uncertainty that this period brings to all our lives.
The Keeping Well Service is here to support you with self help tools, signposting to service or talking therapies with trained therapists.
