How to get support

To seek support, line managers must complete a referral form available upon request from hr.wellbeing@hse.ie

Your referral request will be reviewed by Organisational Health. A meeting will then be arranged with the referral client for an initial consultation (by either phone call, MS Teams or face-to-face).

Further information may be required to finalise a proposed intervention. A consultation and engagement plan will be agreed with the wider team before sign-off of the proposed intervention (support) and progressing into implementation phase.
