Mental Health and Well-being - Staff

Every person at some point in their lives, gets to the point where they feel everything going on in their lives is too much to deal with. For some, it is not until they reach adulthood that they experience this, for others it can be in their youth. There is no shame in admitting to ourselves, and others, when we feel that life is getting to that point. The lockdowns that we have been living through over the last year, have applied extra pressure and we need a little extra help and guidance now more than ever.

With that in mind, we have identified various sources of support for mental health and well-being on this webpage.

There is a huge amount of information on this page for students, staff and parents. However, the most important thing on this webpage is this message to you….is if you have a concern or worry- talk to someone! Please use our contact form or one of the helplines.

Employee Assist Programme

All BWA staff have access to the Employee Assist Programme website where there is a wealth of information and support available. There are some really useful resources available including support around COVID and well-being during the current lock down. All staff also have access to trained counsellors on the phone who can help and support you. The Health Assured programme is free of charge and completely confidential.  I really would encourage you all to take a look if you get a minute.


You can access the health hub through the following this link -
