The Access to Work Mental Health Support Service

This confidential service delivered by Remploy is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and is available at no charge to any employees with depression, anxiety, stress or other mental health issues affecting their work.

Our specialist advisors provide:

  • Tailored work-focused mental health support for nine months
  • Suitable coping strategies
  • A support plan to keep them in, or return to work
  • Ideas for workplace adjustments to help them fulfil their role
  • Practical advice to support those with a mental health condition.

So far, we have supported over 12,000 people across Britain, with a 93 per cent success rate of people retaining their employment after six months.

Please note
To be eligible for this service, individuals need to be in permanent or temporary employment and have a mental health condition (diagnosed or undiagnosed) that has resulted in workplace absence, or is causing difficulties to remain in work.

We also provide support for apprentices through the Supporting Apprentices Service.

What our customers say

Read how the Mental Health Support Service helps Greg McGahan keeps his job, or watch this short video to hear Chris's story.

I was referred to Remploy after a car accident left me with support needs. It's been overwhelming and distressing knowing that I can't function the same way I did before the accident. However, knowing I have Remploy to support me gives me confidence and helps me to feel protected when making a request for reasonable adjustments.

Knowing that I can contact my support worker who will reassure and advise me, and advocate on my behalf with my employers, has really helped me manage my anxiety about retaining my position and staying in work. I appreciate the support very much and would recommend colleagues should their needs arise." Sam 

I’m deeply indebted to Duncan for all his help and support during my depression, from initial ‘meltdown’ to successful post-Asperger’s diagnosis and phased return to work. It’s been a long, up-and-down journey, where I‘ve been blindsided by more than a few unforeseen factors delaying my recovery but Duncan’s been right there for me." James
