Staff mental health and wellbeing hubs

The staff mental health and wellbeing hubs have been set up to provide health and social care colleagues rapid access to assessment and local evidence-based mental health services and support where needed. The hub offer is confidential and free of charge for all health and social care staff.

The hubs can offer you a clinical assessment and referral to local services enabling access to support where needed, such as talking therapy or counselling. It is separate and confidential from your organisation.

It is open to all health and social care staff, from all services and settings regardless of whether you are dealing directly with COVID-19 patients or not. You can self-refer or refer a colleague (with their consent).

How to access support

Please use the regional navigation panel to the left of the page to find out details of the staff mental health and wellbeing hub which covers either the area you work in, the area you live in or both.

The majority of staff mental health and wellbeing hubs are now live, however please check back if a hub in your local area is not yet live. If you need support now please see the current staff wellbeing offers or talking therapies available, also everyone including health and social care staff can access help from their GP.

A small proportion of staff may be referred onto NHS Practitioner Health by their local hub as clinically indicated. This is an enhanced mental health service, which has been commissioned nationally, to support staff whose needs cannot be met locally. Doctors, Dentists and senior leaders also have the option to self-refer to this service, please see the following link for details: https://www.practitionerhealth.nhs.uk/accessing-the-service-for-nhs-workforce
