H7 Mental Health and Wellbeing
As a Mental health Trust we are committed to providing support for mental health in the workplace. We offer a self referral confidential staff counselling service and access to Big White Wall an online anonymous support service. Staff also have access to a psychiatrist through our occupational health provider. The Trust has offered mindfulness, stress management and resilience training to managers and staff.
The Trust promotes the employment of those with lived experience of mental health.
We offer a Job Taster Programme which aims to help service users gain work experience prior to seeking employment. We also employ Peer Support Workers who have lived experience of mental health problems and who are able to engage with people in a practical way that aids and inspires recovery.
