Mental health support

The ambulance community must deal with difficult, and often traumatic, situations every day, and alongside life’s usual stresses, it can take a real toll on their mental health. If you’re struggling, TASC is here to provide independent and confidential mental health support.

TASC mental health support

It’s okay not to be okay, but if you’re seriously struggling with your mental health, TASC is here to provide independent, confidential, and tailored support so you can continue doing the job you love.

Every year, our mental health support is our most in-demand service, accounting for 4 in every 5 interventions we provide. People come to us for help for a number of reasons and in the past, we’ve helped individuals who’ve been experiencing:

  • Stress and burnout
  • Compassion fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

To name a few.

How we work

We work with a range of qualified experts to offer one-to-one talking therapies and online help. When you apply for support, we will assess your application and then refer you to the best treatment pathway for you.

The Ambulance Staff Crisis Phoneline

TASC also runs a 24/7 phoneline to provide immediate and ongoing support to ambulance staff who are feeling suicidal or experiencing suicidal thoughts. The service is completely independent and confidential, and staffed with qualified counsellors.
