At The Charity for Civil Servants, we’re dedicated to lessening the stigma associated with mental health. We understand that your mental health impacts all aspects of your life and that seeking help from professionals can sometimes seem overwhelming or unnecessary.
But our team are here to help. They’ll assist you exploring what support is available and how to begin to access local and national services, as well as other charities, through a guided conversation with you.
This is an opportunity for you to talk about how you’re feeling and what may be the cause of the problem, for example, a change in life circumstance or an unexpected event such as bereavement, job loss or ill health.
Though we’re not mental health professionals, the team have a wide range of experience in supporting people with mental health problems. And we will arrange a convenient time for you to talk to us and begin to explore some of the support available to you.
What will I get if I contact the Charity about my mental health?
- Time to talk
- Someone to listen
- A non-judgemental approach
- Information on local and national charities/organisations that can support you
- Potential to access support through our partner organisations (Anxiety UK, National Autistic Society, Relate)
- Assessment for financial support if required
Please note, we're not mental health practitioners, counsellors or therapists. If you require ongoing or in-depth support, our team will advise you to contact your GP or other professionals that may be supporting you.
Please contact us to discuss how we might be able to support you.
At the appropriate point in the application form please indicate Stress, Anxiety, Depression or Mental Health.
