Mental Health Support

The mental health and wellbeing of St Mary's staff is paramount and it is vital to ensure all staff receive the support and assistance they need. Detailed information on St Mary's Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy and resources for staff (including the Employee Assistance Programme and our Mental Health First Aiders) can be found on our Health and Wellbeing pages

Support for staff

Staff can also contact a trained Mental Health First Aider who can give you initial support and signpost you to appropriate help if required. 

External Support 

There are also a number of external organisations both locally and nationally that provide specialist support and information. Our Community Support page [link] provides a wealth of external resources for specific communities and issue-specific expertise.
