What to expect

Your Healthy Minds worker will discuss with you whether you need support with a work issue. They will refer you for employment advice and our specialist team will contact you by phone to arrange a confidential, one-to-one meeting at a time and location convenient for you, to discuss your current situation and agree a work-focused action plan.
