How to offer support

This newsletter focussed on why and how support can be offered to employees as they progress through their different life stages.  I put a call to action and asked you <Name> to consider wellbeing in a broader context for this years Workplace Wellbeing Day – and beyond.

To this end I wanted to share a link to VerywellMind who have reviewed 22 Apps for self care. Looking for mental health services can be intimidating, especially in a technology-driven world that offers so many options. However, if you’ve wanted to address a mental health issue, but have been nervous about doing so in-person, the remote options available truly rival the more traditional in-person mental health services.

Many of these options are accessible via intuitive apps that are designed to streamline your mental health journey and take most of the guesswork out of finding the expert attention you’ve been seeking.

Most of these apps allow you to access their features at any time and offer a number of ways to stay engaged, like daily reminders, feelings trackers, and abundant learning material. While not all of these mental health apps are meant to supplement a licensed therapist, they can be great tools to help you manage your mental health concerns and treatments.
