Mental health and wellbeing support for NHS staff
Published: 27 April, 2020
The NHS has developed a range of resources through #OurNHSPeople to support staff through the significant stresses brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition NHS staff have been given free access to a number of wellbeing apps from now until the end of December 2020 to support their mental health and wellbeing.
The four apps are:
- Unmind – Unmind is a mental health platform that empowers staff to proactively improve their mental wellbeing. Using scientifically-backed assessments, tools and training you can measure and manage your personal mental health needs, including digital programmes designed to help with stress, sleep, coping, connection, fulfillment and nutrition.
- Headspace – Headspace is a science-backed app in mindfulness and meditation, providing unique tools and resources to help reduce stress, build resilience, and aid better sleep.
- Sleepio – A clinically-evidenced sleep improvement programme that is fully automated and highly personalised, using cognitive behavioural techniques to help improve poor sleep.
- Daylight – A smartphone-based app that provides help to people experiencing symptoms of worry and anxiety, using evidence based cognitive behavioural techniques, voice and animation.
Find out how to register for these apps through the NHS Employers website.
