Well-being resources

The Macmillan Emotional Health and Well-being Hub is a central place for you to find resources to help with your well-being. Find out more about how to use it.


As healthcare professionals, we understand the enormous pressures you are under as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. It is easy to be so focused on the people you support, that you forget to look after yourself. So, it’s vital to try and remember that you cannot pour from an empty cup.

That’s why we have created this Macmillan Professionals Well-being Hub, as a central place to be able to easily access resources to help you strengthen self-care and look after your own well-being. You can visit this hub any time you need to and bookmark the page to easily come back to it. 

As we develop the hub into 2021, we will continue to add resources that we think you may find helpful. such as:

  • Ted Talks
  • YouTube clips
  • webinars
  • podcasts
  • seminars
  • suggested books for wider reading
  • and much more.

We want to ensure that ALL healthcare professionals have access to the support they need, now and in the future.
