Assess your wellbeing

Every now and then, it's good to give yourself a wellbeing check-up. Think about whether you're feeling ok, or if you're not doing so great and need some help. ​

No matter where we work, or what healthcare or social care job we do, we've all had to deal with extra pressures lately. Stress can rise and fall and busy people working in health and social care often just power through, for lots of reasons.

How are you?

The first step to managing your wellbeing is to recognise how you're feeling. Then, assess whether it's under control, whether you can handle it yourself, or if you need some support. These easy to use charts can help.​
