Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT) and Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) have launched a new psychological support service, ‘Here For You’, specifically for staff who work in healthcare, social care, the voluntary sector or not-for-profit sector in Essex or Hertfordshire, as well as those who work in an Essex or Hertfordshire organisation, but are based elsewhere.

Here For You is a mental health and wellbeing service available to any Hertfordshire or Essex health & social care worker struggling with the direct or indirect impact of the Covid-19 pandemic . The service has been commissioned by NHS England & Improvement to be the go to resource for all staff, clinical and non-clinical, whether you are frontline or not. Here For You is a team of mental health experts and maintaining confidentiality is a fundamental principle to our service. For this reason, you have the freedom to choose where you wish to receive your Here For You service across Hertfordshire and Essex.

Here For You is exclusively for health & social care workers and signposts to the right help at the right time; which could include an onward referral if needed.

Our helpline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also welcome email self-referrals at hereforyou@nhs.net (please note emails may take up to 48 hours for a response)

Please also feel free to access our broad range of self help materials: toolkits, videos, Vlogs, and easy to download resources.
