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. You can self-refer or refer a colleague (with their consent).

How to access support

To find out more about people’s experiences of accessing the hubs, please see the following video of a colleague who gained support from a Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub.

All 40 staff mental health and wellbeing hubs are now live. You can also see the current staff wellbeing offers or talking therapies available, also everyone including health and social care staff can access help from their GP.

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.

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 NHS Practitioner Health website for details.

How to provide feedback on the hubs

If you have recently accessed one of the hubs, please complete the following survey and provide feedback on your experience. This will help us to identify any service improvements needed and also measure the impact that the hubs are having.

What to do if you’re unsure whether to contact the hubs

It’s important to ensure our health and social care colleagues are looking after themselves and get timely support should they need it, this in turn can help to support better patient care. The free and confidential self-check tool can provide you with further information on the range of support offers that are available and help you to identify what option is the right one for you to access. The self-check tool is now available at the following link: self-check tool.
