It’s easier to recognise someone’s physical wellbeing than their emotional wellbeing. We also find it much easier to engage in conversations about physical health, but often find talking about emotional wellbeing to be more of a challenge.
This easy to use resource has been developed with NHS staff to:
- help bridge a gap in understanding and to enable us to talk openly and regularly about emotional health
- assess the impacts emotional wellbeing has on ourselves, our colleagues and on our patients
- enable us to action plan to enable more good days than bad.
Using the tool
Staff identified that emotional wellbeing can be explained in three ways we are either:
- on a go slow
- having a good day
- or on the edge.
This resource can help staff to check their own wellbeing or speak to and support colleagues with their emotional wellbeing. It also provides resources and signposting, no matter how you are feeling. Start using the tool now...
