Pastest x You Okay, Doc? Partnership

We have partnered with the mental health charity You Okay, Doc? in an industry first initiative to support the healthcare community.

Their goal is to enable doctors & nurses to seek support, speak freely about mental health and be equipped to manage the inevitable occupational pressures faced. They do this via three areas of work:

  1. Community Activation - 40 doctor ambassadors across the UK who help integrate our services into trusts to support every doctor and nurse.
  2. Educational Resources - they deliver evidence-based tools that empower doctors' and nurses' mental health, including via their YOD Podcast and webinars.
  3. Support Services - including (i) The Huddle - their therapist-led peer support groups and (ii) their 24/7 confidential text support in partnership with SHOUT UK exclusively for doctors and nurses.

To date, they have supported over 3,000 doctors!
