It’s not easy seeing anyone going through a difficult time.
While for some it may be obvious that they’re struggling, we know that some people do try to shut it out.

Ask them how they are managing as this may help them make sense of the way they are feeling.
Please encourage your colleague to complete our self assessment form which will help evaluate their current wellbeing and they can also choose to refer themselves to the Resilience Hub if they wish to do so.
Everything you tell us is confidential - we will not need to tell your work that you have been in touch.
If you refer yourself to the Resilience Hub you can expect to hear from us within 3 working days and you will be offered an appointment to have a conversation with a caring member of the Resilience Hub team.
This conversation is an opportunity to think about what it is you are struggling with and what help and support may be of benefit to you.
You can find out more about the Resilience Hub on this website, including more about the support our staff can offer, who can access the help and testimonials from those who have already benefited from the service.
