Work Well Advice Line to relaunch as part of community-led action plan

The Work Well Advice Line is to relaunch in early 2022 as part of the community-led South London Listens action plan to prevent mental ill-health in south London. 

The South London Listens programme is a partnership between the NHS, local authorities, and community organisations designed to respond to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the mental health and wellbeing of communities in south London.  

The programme’s action plan was published in October, and outlines how the South London Listens programme partners will deliver on their pledges over the next two years. 

Dr Claire Wrynne, Professional Lead for Supported Employment at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust said: “We’re really pleased to be relaunching the Work Well Advice Line as part of the South London Listens programme.  

“The link between employment and mental health is widely recognised. We know that working is good for our mental wellbeing, while long periods of unemployment or experiencing stress at the workplace be very damaging. 

“The Work Well Advice Line will be there for anyone in south London with a work-related issue causing them stress, whether it be unemployment, redundancy, bullying or other workplace issues.”
