Sometimes it can be beneficial to receive emotional support from someone who is not a family member. People may not feel comfortable talking to family members about their concerns in case it causes additional stress. This means they do not share their worries and their mental health can suffer as a result.
Our Health and Wellbeing Team provide emotional support for those who need it so they can offload their worries. They may find it easier talking to someone outside of the family as they have an impartial view. Our team can also be there to listen with no judgement or offers of solutions, as sometimes this is just what a person needs.
