Staff Wellbeing

We are proud to say that we take the health and wellbeing of all our staff very seriously.

We are very pleased to announce its engagement of a Wellbeing and Mental Health Champion for the Trust. Mrs Bev Lynch holds a Mental Health First Aider Certificate; RSA Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork; and an MA in Counselling Studies.

This role is to support any Trust employees wishing to discuss their personal wellbeing and mental health. This will be a confidential service and Bev will offer a verbal contract of anonymity to all callers. Without any reference to identifying personal details Bev will feedback to the Trust general staff concerns so that these can be addressed Trust-wide.

Wellbeing is based on our self-belief and self-esteem. When we like ourselves, we are far more likely to be kinder and more understanding when interacting with others.

Bev can be contacted for confidential advice and support
via wellbeing@greatheightstrust.org.uk
or calling 07542 683712

“Hello. How are you?”
This question will never go out of fashion if genuinely meant.

I was interested to find the following 5 steps to mental wellbeing on the NHS website which then referenced the MIND website:

  1. Connect with other people – Stay connected with friends and family. Share your concerns with people you trust and by doing so you may well be of help to them.
  2. Be physically active – Research continues to demonstrate that keeping active has significant benefits for both our physical and mental wellbeing.
  3. Learn new skills – When we learn a new skill it boosts self-confidence and raises our self-esteem.
  4. Support and help others – In helping someone else you benefit too. Try to be a little more understanding of other’s concerns, worries or behaviours during this particular time.
  5. Pay attention to the present moment (mindfulness) – Focus on the present and do things you enjoy.
