Mental health support and advice from Bupa’s experts

Mental health concerns can affect all of us in different ways, so here are some of the latest ways we’ve written about.

Health assessments

If you’d like a more comprehensive picture of your health and any potential health risks our selection of health assessments might be a good option for you. You’ll get time with one of our health advisers who’ll help you with practical ways to become healthier and fitter.

After your Health Assessment, you’ll have 12 months access to SilverCloud with lots of useful tools and advice to help with mental health issues. Then depending upon what assessment you choose, you may get time with a Bupa GP to discuss any health concerns that you have.
