Free, fast and confidential wellbeing and psychological support – for health and social care staff in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes

By care professionals for care professionals

We are here to provide wellbeing and psychological support to all NHS staff and staff providing care to others in the community, including residential homes and voluntary sector organisations in the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes area.

The service provides rapid access to support in a variety of ways, including a ‘live-chat’ (coming soon to the site) where health and care workers can, in confidence, talk to expert clinicians about any personal or professional challenges that are impacting on their stress, anxiety or mood. This could be new mental health symptoms or a worsening of pre-existing difficulties.
