Supporting the mental health of NHS staff


The coronavirus pandemic has presented the NHS workforce with one of their greatest challenges to date. Whilst it’s unlikely that we’ll understand the full impact of COVID-19 on the mental health and wellbeing of the NHS workforce for some time yet, we do know that compassionate leadership is needed now more than ever.

This PDF guide aims to provide practical advice, hints and tips to help NHS leaders and line managers to create mentally healthy cultures and support better mental health. It includes information about mental health stigmas, and how to break them down, as well as tips for starting difficult conversations about wellbeing.

This PDF is the first of a series of resources aimed at NHS leaders, managers and champions.

There are three resources in this series, aimed at different roles within the NHS. You can find the other resources available here. (link)
