In the first instance we would ask you to talk to them. It has been shown that peer to peer support such as checking in with each other can be extremely beneficial to the staff member who is struggling. Make sure that they are aware of the support available to them including the local Staff Support helpline (0141 277 7623and this mental health check in. If you are worried that your colleague is at risk of harm, then we advise you to speak to your supervisor and /or manager as well as to the staff member themselves.

Your data will be collected and reviewed by the mental health check in clinicians and admin. If your answers indicate that you would benefit from further support, we will use your data to contact you by telephone. Your answers will be used to help tailor the support we offer you to your current difficulties.

That depends on what difficulties you are having and what support you require. If on the mental health check in you indicate that you are experiencing mental health difficulties then the  team member will attempt to contact you on the telephone. This telephone call is to explore how you are feeling just now and may result in you being signposted to a range of supports. For some people this telephone call will recommend that you would benefit from a fuller assessment and this will be arranged. The clinical psychologist will use this assessment to gain a better understanding of how you are feeling and will match you to the support and / or care you require.

The Mental Health Check In includes demographic information questions and three standardised, valid mental health tools. These tools have been developed to help with the identification of some common mental health difficulties. The questions ask you to rate each answer based on your experiences over the last two weeks or last month. These tools have individual scoring scales which have been developed to identify people suffering from mental health difficulties. If your scores are indicative of a current mental health difficulty an alert will be triggered by the Check In and the clinicians will be notified of this alert.
