South East Leadership Academy

Staff Mental Health & Wellbeing Hubs

Ask for support | Talk to someone | Get practical help

Mental Health and Wellbeing NHS and Social Care Staff Hubs offer fast, free and confidential psychological assessment and support across the South East.  Trained staff are available to offer support, resources and advice as well as clinical assessment for those that require it.
Mental Health and Wellbeing hubs were established in January 2021 in recognition of the rapidly growing need to support health and care staff. In July 2020 58% of staff surveyed met the criteria for anxiety, depression and PTSD. While the level is not currently known, it is expected that this rate has since increased.

Rapid referrals can be made by individuals and line managers either to your own hub or a neighbouring one if you would prefer.
