Events like the current Covid-19 pandemic are extremely rare. When they do happen, it is normal to have strong reactions; to feel stressed, confused and scared. Talking to people you know, and trust, can help.

The resources available on North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust's (NCIC) wellbeing pages can help you to manage anxiety and stop it becoming a problem in its own right. 

In order to support NCIC staff as much as possible, the trust has created a Staff Wellbeing helpline - the contact number is: 0800 633 5547 

The service runs 7 days a week from 8am - 12 and 4pm - 8pm, and together you can discuss the most helpful route to take to gain support at this time.

Please ask for help if you need it by calling the helpline, or accessing the wide range of self-help resources on the wellbeing pages.
