Mental health support

Are you struggling at work due to depression, stress or anxiety?

The Access to Work Mental Health Support Service is a confidential service delivered by Remploy and funded by the Department for Work and Pensions

It is available at no charge to any employees with depression, anxiety, stress or other mental health issues affecting their work.

So far, we have already supported thousands of people with a mental health condition who are absent from work or finding work difficult, to stay in, or return to work.

If you or your colleagues would like support, call us now on 0300 456 8114
or email

Please note that due to the Covid-19 outbreak, our team is working from home. Our service is still fully operational, and we aim to contact you within four hours. Our current opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

Our trained experts will help you with:

  • Nine months of work-focused mental health support matched to your needs
  • Suitable coping strategies
  • A support plan to help you stay in, or return to work
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Advice for your employer on how to support people with a mental health condition.

To qualify, you need to:

  • Be in permanent or temporary employment (attending work or signed off)
  • Have a mental health condition (diagnosed or undiagnosed) that has resulted in workplace absence, or is causing difficulties to remain in work.
