What we do
Welcome to the Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) Wellbeing Hub,'BSW Wellbeing Matters'.
We provide a central point of contact for mental health advice and support for all health and care workers in Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire. We offer targeted mental health support for nurses, paramedics, therapists working in NHS services, pharmacists, support staff and other key workers in the community such as residential care home workers. Research indicates that health and social care staff are likely to have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic more than any other group. At the same time, you might also have been hesitant to seek support from existing mental health services due to concerns around your role and confidentiality. With our BSW Wellbeing Matters hub, you can directly access help and resources provided by a dedicated group of staff including psychologists and registered mental health clinicians.
These are some of the problems you might be having that we can help with:
Feeling anxious or worried
Feeling low in mood
Having trouble sleeping
Struggling with the impact of a bereavement
Finding it hard to cope with changes in your work environment
Feeling distressed or traumatised
Worrying about money or debt problems
Support with relationships
If you are experiencing difficulties with your relationship, you can also contact Relate. As well as offering support with relationships, they can help with anxiety and stress.
If you work in health and social care in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon or Wiltshire, you can contact the team at Relate in the following ways:
