It’s likely the events of the last year have impacted your mental wellbeing in some way. Isolation, uncertainty, burnout, grief and loss are just a few of the challenges we’ve been supporting the ICAEW community with over the last 12 months. And we’re here to support you, too. Whenever you feel ready.

Your mental wellbeing is about your thoughts and feelings and how you cope with the ups and downs of everyday life. Importantly, good mental wellbeing is not the absence of negative thoughts and feelings. We all feel angry, sad, or overwhelmed at times. Instead, it's about being able to understand and manage those feelings so that you can live with a sense of purpose, perspective, and optimism. Even when times get tough.
