Mental health problems can affect any of us at any time. Anxiety and stress in particular can lead to serious health problems. If you are experiencing a period of mental ill-health, there are a number of options available to you for support and help.

For work related issues please contact the Occupational Health Service.

An Occupational Health Unit leaflet gives information on the services offered by the unit and also contact details.

You may also want to talk to your supervisor, head of department, Human Resources or the departmental Harassment Advisors for advice. You might also consider speaking with your GP, practice nurse or personal counsellor. The Occupational Health unit provides support on issues such as Stress, Depression, Bullying and Harassment, and provides confidential Staff Counselling.
