The Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub (LLR MHW Hub)

April 24, 2022

The Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub (LLR MHW Hub) has a new Outreach team to focus on providing care home staff access to mental health and wellbeing support.

As the care home staff continue to face further disruption due the pandemic, ,increased stress, exhaustion and burnout, increased risk of developing longer term mental health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety and compassion fatigue are just some of the health problems people in the social care sector are experiencing.

The new outreach team led by Salim Khalifa and Leona Knott – are offering managers and staff the opportunity to access face or digital outreach sessions, which include:

  1. Advice to staff of LLR Hub health and wellbeing initiatives.
  2. Direct referrals into Amica Counselling services should any staff member feel the need for confidential support away from their work environment.
  3. Online tools on a platform called Silver cloud, which can be accessed by all staff and has a number of modules around anxiety, stress, sleep and can offer a further enhanced service where a member of the Amica staff can offer online support.
  4. Outreach clinics in Care Homes, where staff can speak to a worker.
  5. Videos and programmes on resilience and mindfulness.
