Starting the conversation about wellbeing

alt='starting the conversation cover'

Being there #forthefour starts with the friends, family members and colleagues closest to you. You don’t need to be an expert in wellbeing to support those around you.

To help you start the conversation we have created downloadable resources for you to use. From top tips and graphics, through to activities, we have put together a diverse range of content to support the wellbeing of four out of four of your colleagues. 

You are free to use these resources as you deem appropriate but we have suggested some uses in the descriptions below. If there is anything else you need or if you have any queries, please email [email protected]

Top tips

Here are some top tips for anyone looking to start a conversation with a member of your team. It is helpful to print this sheet and have it with you.
