Talk to us, we’re here to listen

Its ok to not be ok graphic

A new trust-wide campaign launches today and carries a simple message, it’s good to talk and we are here to listen.

As we move into Spring, many of us are looking forward to the future and the possibility of seeing family and friends again, but although the pressures of last year are slowly easing, the importance of taking care of your health and wellbeing remains as important as ever.

The past 12 months have been challenging for us all and we have spoken a lot about the importance of seeking help or support if you are feeling overwhelmed or facing a challenging time, whether personally or professionally.

The importance of this will not change as the pressures ease. As we move forward, there continue to be people, and services, available and ready to listen whenever you need them, and we are asking all of you to share this reminder with your teams and colleagues across the trust.

Don’t suffer alone. If you have a problem just speaking to someone else can often make it easier.

Speak to someone you trust
Whether that’s family, friends, work colleagues or your line manager.
You can also contact the EEAST BeingWell Team:

You, or your immediate family, can contact the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to discuss all types of personal issues (financial, parenting, caring and so on), on a confidential basis     
Call the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) on 0808 196 2374.

When life gets too tough: you don’t know what to do or who to turn to,
call the EEAST Crisis Line on 0808 196 2370.

Please help us share this message and the posters around your stations and offices

Over the coming weeks, we will build on this information and share some ideas, thoughts, tools and techniques to further promote health and wellbeing.
