- The Wellbeing Line provides mental health and wellbeing support for everyone working in health and social care in Gloucestershire. The Wellbeing Line is confidential and free of charge. It provides rapid mental health and psychological wellbeing assessments as well as signposting to appropriate services where required. You can contact The Wellbeing Line directly if you are struggling with your own mental health or wellbeing, or if you are worried about a colleague. There is no need for a referral. If you are a team manager then you can contact The Wellbeing Line if you would like support managing the wellbeing of your team or an individual team member. The Wellbeing Line is in addition to, and not instead of, your organisation's occupational health service. Contact by phone: 0300 421 7500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
