​Mental health resources for healthcare workers

​At Newcross, we understand how important it is for us to care for our carers, which is why we offer a range of useful mental health resources for healthcare workers.

Employee assistance programme

Our myHealthPlan package features an employee assistance programme which enables all staff to access specialist mental health support whenever they need it. This includes unlimited 24/7 telephone counselling, face-to-face sessions, and online counselling options too. You can choose the support that best suits you and this can be arranged around your schedule, with telephone and online counselling accessible from the comfort of your own home.


Woebot is an AI counsellor which you can access whenever you need it. Offering ‘in the moment’ emotional support, Woebot is the result of clinical research and is easy to talk to when you feel like you need a chat. Simply download the app and you can start a conversation with Woebot, track your mood, or create a journal entry.

There are lots of different topics that you can choose to discuss with Woebot, including how to achieve your goals, manage your emotions, focus on the positives, and ways to keep your brain active. Each topic is split into sub-sections and you can pick whichever one suits you. It also tells you how long you can expect each discussion to last so you can put that time aside to work on your mental wellbeing.

Wellness seminars

We teamed up with inner wellness coach Suhail Mirza who delivered seminars to our healthcare community and has shared some amazing vlogs with us too. These mental health resources for healthcare workers are available to access via myLearning and cover a range of wellness topics, including:

  • Key coaching principles

  • How to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and worry

  • Visualisation

  • Practising gratitude

  • The importance of contemplation

  • Empowering texts

The resources that Suhail has created are there to help you to reset your busy mind, reassess what’s important and discover the secret to personal fulfilment – helping you to achieve peace and clarity in your day-to-day life.

We hope that you find these mental health resources for healthcare workers useful and would love to know if there’s anything else we could do to support you. Please email us at and share your thoughts with us. You might also like to take a look at some of the other employee benefits that we offer.
