Mental health support – virtual appointment day

Scrabble tiles spelling "mental health"

Argyll and Bute Council is partnering with Access to Work Mental Health Support Service to offer you a free ‘Virtual Appointment Day’.

The service will have time slots available on Wednesday 7th August (1:00pm – 6:00pm) and Friday 9th August (08:00am – 1:00pm). 

On the day, a member of The Better Health Generation team will call you at your chosen time to discuss how they can support your Mental Health – whether it be stress, anxiety, low mood or generally feeling burnt out.

The confidential call aims to answer any initial questions you may have regarding the service they can provide. If you would like to proceed with accessing the support, they will gather your basic details to apply for the Mental Health Support there and then, at your own pace. This is fully confidential, and we as your employer will not be made aware of any appointments or bookings.

Please don’t miss out and follow the link below to book your timeslot now:
