DO I NEED SUPPORT? Try the anonymous IBA Centre for Excellence in Journalism Well-being checklist for journalists
Here is a quick and simple checklist to help you assess how you are generally doing and feeling, and if you are struggling in any way. If you find that you are agreeing with some or many of these statements, you may want to seek help and get the support you may need to deal with issues better and to live a happier, healthier life.
PLEASE NOTE: Most people will tick a lot of boxes, which is quite usual. BUT if you feel these symptoms or signs are affecting your quality of life, then you could consider seeking help.
In order to make an appointment please email, call or message our coordinator Quratul Ain Ali.
