Health and Wellbeing
The health and wellbeing of all our staff and students is of the utmost importance to the University. You will find on these pages a range of information, resources and support. We have recently launched our Health and Wellbeing plan 2020-21, for more details please click on the image below.
We have a varied and comprehensive programme of events, activities and promotions planned for
the forthcoming year providing many opportunities for staff to engage in. We are always seeking
feedback to ensure that our programme is fit for purpose and aligned to the needs of our staff. If you
would like to speak to us about any of the programmes or offer suggestions as to content, please
contact: Rhona Bain, HR Partner - Inclusion, firstname.lastname@example.org
A note on Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental health and wellbeing affects us all. People may fluctuate between thriving, struggling, being well, and being ill, and possibly unable to attend work. We believe that mental health difficulties should not be a barrier to employees reaching their full potential at work.
Nobody is immune to mental health difficulties and we are committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of our employees and supporting their mental wellbeing. There is never a wrong time to ask for help and support and there is never a wrong time to simply ask someone how they are feeling and take some time to listen. It is important we build a culture that breaks down the stigma of mental health issues to help colleagues feel comfortable asking for support.
Read more about support on the Mental Health and Wellbeing Support page and the External Resources page.
If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency please call 999 now. If you feel that your mental health is at breaking point, you can speak to Samaritans or Edinburgh Crisis Centre.
The resources and information listed is to help you look after yourself and your colleagues. If you have any feedback on the information provided please get in touch.
