Individuals and teams working in health, social care and the police can now access free and confidential support through the the Devon Wellbeing Hub.
Whether it’s pressures related to work, family life, financial strains, or low mood and anxiety, the Devon Wellbeing Hub is here to help.
People will be offered a 1:1 telephone or video call appointment with a qualified and understanding clinician who’ll compassionately listen to people’s worries and needs, and develop a wellbeing plan.
The Hub can also refer and signpost people to a wide range of services available across Devon, including NHS and other statutory services; local third sector and charity services; nationally available offers to keyworkers, and other support offers.
The Hub is designed to be a single place where someone concerned about their wellbeing can come, unpick their needs and be supported to get to the right services quickly.
Managers working in health, social care and police organisations in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay will be able to make a request for direct support for their team. Led by a clinical psychologist, a needs assessment will take place following the request.
Support is tailored to the specific needs of each team and may include reflective practice, supervision and coping strategies to help improve the psychological wellbeing of the team.
