EWS offers a range of interventions for people with mild to moderate mental health conditions. We do not accept management referrals, or referrals completed on behalf of another person. It is very important that an individual self refers to this service.
Managers and colleagues do however play and important role in signposting staff to access this service. People are often reluctant to ask for help and can be encouraged to do so when another shows concern. In 2018 over 40% of those who referred to us say they heard about the service from their manager. However, it is very important that the individual does not feel under pressure to refer. Someone will only benefit from our service if they are ready to change.
