Ben launches fast-track support

SilverCloud is a leading digital mental health and wellbeing platform which can support people to better manage their mental health and wellbeing. The SilverCloud programmes use an evidence-based, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach which focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

A number of different programmes are available on the platform, including topics such as stress, anxiety and depression, as well as supporting issues such as money worries, sleep and resilience.

SilverCloud is completely free for anyone who works, or has worked, in the automotive industry.

Rachel Clift, health and wellbeing director, said: "This continues to be a very challenging and uncertain time for us all, especially for those who work in our industry. The pandemic has left many people struggling with their mental health, as well as with other issues such as poor sleep and money worries. In response, we're delighted to be offering immediate access to our digital platform, SilverCloud, which is free for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive industry.

"With so many programmes to choose from, I'm thrilled we can offer this support to those working across the industry. SilverCloud will help people look after their mental health and wellbeing both now during these tough times, as well as in the future.

"Thanks to the generous support from both AutoTrader and SMMT Charitable Trust, we can provide this fast-track access to SilverCloud. This will raise more awareness which will enable us to reach more people across the industry."
