Mental health

St Monica Trust has an action plan with Time to Change.  This marks our commitment to a series of actions to get us talking and opening up about mental health.  We know it’s not always easy to talk, but talking is the starting point.  If you’d like to see or take part in our action plan, please contact Naomi from the People Directorate.

The emotional well-being section of our well-being website provides some guidance on managing your mental health and links to a range of services and support.  Don’t forget our Employee Assistance Programme, which also offers a 24 hour confidential helpline and website.  See the Trust Hub or contact the People Directorate for the log in details and/or telephone number.

Advice from the mental health foundation is: “If you are concerned that you are developing a mental health problem you should seek the advice and support of your GP as a matter of priority.”  Their website holds direct links to organisations which can help you:
