Frequently asked questions


What does the support involve? 

We will help you improve your mental wellbeing at work. This is a voluntary, confidential, and non-clinical service delivered by Maximus, and funded by the Department for Work and Pensions. While we do not offer counselling or therapy, our service will provide you with nine months of practical advice, guidance on coping strategies, workplace adjustments and more.  

Do I have to pay? 

There is no cost to you or your employer as our support is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Will my employer need to know?
