The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a profound impact on the world of work. It has brought a lot of other worries too – from health, to finances, to job security, to restrictions and uncertainties, to balancing home and work. It’s normal to have concerns.
This brief, accessible guide is designed to help you look after your mental health while working at the moment.
It’s based on the IGLOo framework, developed by the University of Sheffield and Affinity Health at Work, which recognises that we all need other people and ourselves to help us stay healthy and happy:
- Individual resources: things like confidence and self-care;
- Group resources: help from colleagues, friends and family;
- Leader resources: help from your line manager, GP or service providers; and
- Organisational resources: help provided by your organisation, volunteer groups or charities.
