Supporting Staff – New Resources Available

A new leaflet is now available highlighting a range of psychological resources to help deal with the pressures of everyday life and work. It includes information on self-help resources, courses and services, which are known to be effective in addressing commonly experienced difficulties such as stress, anxiety and depression.

One of the resources signposted is Wellbeing Books. These are self-help books outlining evidence-based psychological approaches to dealing with issues such as stress, low mood, self-esteem, bereavement, etc. A selection of these books can now be found in the library at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in the wellbeing book section. Electronic copies are also available; please contact library services for help in accessing these.

The leaflet entitled ‘Dealing with Everyday Pressures of Life and Healthcare Work’ will be arriving in your department soon. It can also be viewed on the Occupational Health page of the intranet by following this link http://staffnet.fv.scot.nhs.uk/a-z/occupational-health/available-services/

If you would like further copies of the leaflet, please contact Occupational Health at FVRH on 01324 566663 or FV-UHB.ohsadmin@nhs.net.
