Our wellbeing campaigns

As part of our commitment to our pharmacy family, we want to encourage conversations around mental health and wellbeing and provide a safe space and simple solutions to enable those in the profession to take action.

Our mission is to champion wellbeing

Wellbeing is a much deeper concept than moment-to-moment happiness. It’s the state of having good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose, and the ability to manage stress. We believe that setting aside time as often as possible to dedicate to wellbeing is important for sustained happiness, control of our emotions, higher productivity, and good physical health. As part of our commitment to our pharmacy family, we want to encourage conversations around mental health and wellbeing and provide a safe space and simple solutions to enable those in the profession to take action. This is why in 2020 we launched our first ever wellbeing campaign: ACTNow.

What is ACTNow?

We know it can be difficult to find time to prioritise wellbeing, especially with the commitment and pressures that come with working and studying in pharmacy. In our dedication to support you, Pharmacist Support is proud to run our annual ACTNow wellbeing campaigns. ACTNow encourages individuals to:

  • Allow time for wellbeing
  • Consider the needs of others
  • Take action.

During the campaign, you will have access to a multitude of resources and events to help you become familiar with wellbeing and support you to prioritise wellbeing in your everyday life.

Prioritise your wellbeing and sign up today!

Our ACTNow campaigns are targeted to each of our key audiences; pharmacists, trainee pharmacists and student pharmacists, and run at different points of the year.
