Free mental health support for County Durham businesses

Businesses across County Durham can access more mental health support in the workplace

Durham County Council has commissioned and funded a two-year employee assistance programme for small and medium sized businesses and voluntary and community sector organisations with fewer than 250 employees.

It is hoped the programme will be particularly valuable as many businesses, organisations and employees now deal with the impact of Covid-19 on their work and lives.

The programme will be delivered by PAM Wellbeing Ltd. which will provide confidential telephone support and advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, via a single free telephone number – 0808 196 3863.

It is designed to help employees resolve any personal or work-based issues that might impact their work, health or emotional wellbeing and is a confidential service that will be provided independently of both the council, and the employee’s organisation.

The service is entirely free for small and medium sized businesses to use and covers all employees as well as company owners and managers.

As well as the telephone services there is also a website that includes articles on financial matters, nutrition, exercise, recipes and many more subjects Simply log on using User Name: countydurhameap and Password: countydurhameap1

The service is also available via an app which is free and downloadable from either Apple I Store or Google Play store.
