About the campaign
The Check-In campaign aims to prevent staff suicide and promote a wellbeing culture by normalising the conversation around suicide and mental health as well as providing training, resources and signposting for support.
‘Staff’ includes all colleagues, working and volunteering, in organisations, across the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership area.
Whether front-line, office, service or community based, everyone works incredibly hard to provide great care. Through Check-In we are inviting mental wellbeing conversations as common place, without fear of judgement, within all teams, departments and roles.
Across West Yorkshire and Harrogate organisations are working together to create a culture in which we acknowledge ourselves as people in and outside of work.
We’re probably the poorest at taking care of our colleagues’ mental health as well as our own.”A medical administrator
