Why I’m ok most of the time

It’s not an accident when we’re able to cope with the challenges that life throws at us.

On these pages you’ll find information about good mental health and what helps us be resilient in the face of adversity, as well as advice on how you can be a supportive colleague or manager. 

These resources and the tips on self-care will be relevant whether the challenges you’re facing  a potentially traumatic incident, or stress at work or home. We hope they help you stay safe and well.
