The West Lothian Mental Health & Wellbeing Prevention Group are looking to gather feedback from people working or volunteering in West Lothian who interact with the general public regularly in their role (and therefore potentially fall within the wider wellbeing workforce*).
We are asking people across the Third Sector, West Lothian Council, NHS, Police, Education and beyond to complete the West Lothian wider wellbeing workforce survey by Friday 22nd September.
This will help the group understand awareness around mental health and wellbeing in West Lothian and what additional information and resources would be useful to support people in their roles. The information provided will help inform the development of a practitioner’s section on the website West Space to help people feel more informed about basic mental health and wellbeing when at work/volunteering.
Please share the survey as widely as possible with your networks. We are looking to reach anyone working with the general public who may have an indirect input into people’s wellbeing, not just people working in mental health.
The survey is anonymous and should take around 5-10 minutes to complete.
If you would like more information, or to be kept informed of resources developed, please contact email@example.com.
*The new Scottish Government Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy defines the wider mental wellbeing workforce as including wider public, third, and independent sectors which, although not directly employed in providing mental health services, support and treatment, play an important role in supporting someone’s mental health and wellbeing and can also play a significant role in promoting good mental health for all. Examples include, but are not limited to, employers; health, social work and social care staff; community link workers; police officers; community group leaders; faith leaders; school staff and youth workers”.
