CABA supports the wellbeing of the global ICAEW community. This includes past and present ICAEW members, ACA students, ICAEW staff and their close family members.

All of our services, including those provided by our partners, are free and strictly confidential.

On this site, you’ll find ways we can help you take care of your mental wellbeing and support the people around you. With self-help resources, interactive online tools, and professional, one-to-one services, there’s something for everyone.

What is mental wellbeing?

Your mental wellbeing is about your thoughts and feelings and how you cope with the ups and downs of everyday life. Importantly, good mental wellbeing is not the absence of negative thoughts and feelings. We all feel angry, sad, or overwhelmed at times. Instead, it's about being able to understand and manage those feelings so that you can live with a sense of purpose, perspective, and optimism. Even when times get tough.

It’s likely the events of the last year have impacted your mental wellbeing in some way. Isolation, uncertainty, burnout, grief and loss are just a few of the challenges we’ve been supporting our community with over the last 12 months. And we’re here to support you too. Whenever you feel ready.
