International Stress Awareness Week
International Stress Awareness week is taking place between the 1st and 5th of November and raises awareness of the impact stress has on our mental health and educates people on the importance of stress prevention. Stress doesn’t only affect us emotionally but is detrimental to our physical and mental health, causing issues ranging from anxiety and depression to obesity and heart disease.
www.stress.org.uk contains a range of useful resources and information and has some great information about strategies for self help but also when and how to seek support from others.
