Millions of people across the country are working tirelessly on the frontline against Coronavirus, putting both their physical and mental health at risk to protect the country.
That’s why last week, leading mental health organisations united for the first time to launch Our Frontline; a new initiative providing essential mental health and bereavement support, both right now and for the months ahead.
Mind, Samaritans, Shout, Hospices UK and The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come together to ensure we look after essential workers during COVID-19 and then be there for them to help them rebuild and recover, alongside our economy and society.
Our Frontline offers round the clock 1-2-1 support with a trained volunteer, by call or text, to those working on our frontline as well as tools and resources specifically designed to support their mental health through this unprecedented challenge.
Over the past few weeks, millions of frontline workers across the UK have put their physical and mental health on the line to protect us all during the Coronavirus pandemic. Every day they confront traumatic situations at the same time as having to content with their own worries about the risks to themselves and their families. Catherine and I, together with The Royal Foundation, will do all we can to support Our Frontline. – The Duke of Cambridge
Mind, Samaritans, Shout and Hospices UK will be working with employers, charities and representative groups to support NHS staff and all frontline carers, the Bluelight emergency services, and all keyworkers, from teachers to refuse workers, putting their physical and mental health at risk as Our Frontline against Coronavirus.
