This page explores how we can understand stress and recognise our own personal warning signs, and ways we can deal with stress to help lead happier and more fulfilling lives.
The Role of the Listening Friend
Our Listening Friends peer support service provides callers with an opportunity to talk about the stresses or pressures working in or studying pharmacy may be causing them. Our volunteers do not provide advice, but they recognise the pressures of pharmacy practice and will offer the time and space to talk through those issues to try to find clarity. This may include directing the caller to more specialist help if needed. Volunteers are trained to offer support regarding the particular pressures that apply to pharmacy.
Would you like to help a fellow pharmacist who may be struggling and need a friendly, confidential listening ear?
If you think this could be you, we’re currently looking to recruit volunteers to our Listening Friends service.
