Staying mentally healthy

As part of The Aster Offer, Plumm, our mental health platform and the Thrive app, provide our colleagues with support and resources to help them to stay mentally fit and healthy.

Both offer access to guided meditations, but they have different tools/resources:

Plumm - on MS Teams (and Teams on devices) – you can:

  • Book free counselling and therapy sessions (via video)
  • Chat with a therapist online and send as many messages as you like
  • Access live and recorded webinars and sessions
  • Record your mood and complete a journal.

Thrive - a downloadable app on any device – you can:

  • Work through CBT sessions on the app
  • Learn coping techniques and ways to calm anxiety
  • Track your mood and receive tips based on your answers
  • Learn relaxation techniques and calm breathing Play games designed to distract from unhelpful thinking.

Colleagues are also able to access the Perkbox Wellbeing hub and a range of resources, webinars and sessions through our Mentally Healthy programme. They can talk to our Mental Health First Aiders and our Employee Assistance Programme provides confidential clinical expertise and 24/7 support services.
