Our counsellors are delighted to offer a new online peer support group for staff members who are currently in a personal caring role. We will be holding monthly sessions online that you can easily book.

The sessions will be facilitated by two counsellors from the staff Health and Wellbeing Service.

Colleague Common Room That conversation in the break out area could have really made someone’s day. You may have been the first person in weeks to ask someone how they are, we want to reignite these conversations and daily prompts.

All colleagues are invited to a virtual weekly catch up and a cuppa in our virtual colleague common room so that we can ‘check in’, see how one another are and basically try to stay engaged within these times that can sometimes feel pretty full on.

If you would like more information please contact staffsupportservices@Merseycare.nhs.uk

Our buddy system offers colleagues the opportunity to ‘buddy up’ check in on one another prompting positive action to support one another’s welfare.

The system can be used for general weekly check ins, a vehicle to offer support and encouragement or a place for you both to share concerns – this could be particularly useful for staff who are now working from home, or for anyone who needs some company and dialogue.

We are holding monthly sessions via an online platform that you will easily be able to book onto (see below).

The session will be facilitated by two counsellors from the Staff Health and Wellbeing Service, Julie Roberts and Becky Dickens.

We have been lucky enough to secure the time and expertise from some of the consultants from our Sexual and Reproductive Health Service and they will attend some but not all of the sessions. If you would like more information please contact staffsupportservices@Merseycare.nhs.uk
