This guidance is for employers in Gloucestershire who want to know more about how to support their staff to maintain positive mental health and wellbeing. You may be a small enterprise or larger organisation; whatever the size of your workforce there is plenty of information here to help you.

In November 2020, a letter was sent to employers in Gloucestershire by Sarah Scott, Director of Public Health at Gloucestershire County Council. This letter provides further information on support services for those who may be struggling with their wellbeing due to Covid-19. Read the Letter to Employers here.
