The purpose of the trial was to find the right partner to help us deliver the Mental Health Support Programme so we could ensure care workers were getting the best quality support possible. We selected twenty care workers in total, ten per company participating in the trial to attend up to ten one-hour therapy sessions.
We are currently in the process of gathering feedback from the participants which has so far been very positive. The idea is for us to be able to not only financial support, but also support with the mental health issues that arise from various factors. We hope to fully launch the Mental Health Support Programme in early 2021.
What we do is dependent on funding. Therefore, we are always grateful for any support.
