Head First is a free mental wellbeing resource designed for people working in the ambulance service. It has information on positive mental health, resilience and recovery.

Research shows that members of the emergency services have a higher risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general public, so it is vital that the right support is available. This resource, from NHS Employers, is split into three sections:

  • looking after your own emotional wellbeing, resilience and mental health;
  • what to do if you’re having a tough time;
  • how to recover and reflect if you have been struggling.

It’s full of links to other useful sites, toolkits and real-life case studies too.
