Mental health support
With so much going on around us right now, lots of us may be experiencing changes related to our mental wellbeing, such as increased feelings of stress, worry, anxiousness, loneliness, and isolation.
And no matter our age or the situation we find ourselves in, there has never been a time more pertinent than now, to know that there’s support available if we need it.
The Bank Workers Charity (BWC) exists to support bank employees and their dependents, offering advice and practical support around mental health and wellbeing for both adults and young people. Here are some ways they may be able to help.
