Stress Awareness Day

Today is Stress Awareness Day highlighting the ways that stress can affect people and what you can do to manage your stress before it becomes a problem. Millions around the UK experience stress and it is damaging to our health and wellbeing.

At its heart is the free, NHS-approved Mind Plan, available on the Every Mind Matters website. By answering five short questions you will get a personalised mental health action plan, providing practical tips to help you deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood, sleep better and feel more in control. You can also join a 4-week email support programme where you can get reminders, swap in new tips and are encouraged to make looking after your mental wellbeing part of your everyday routine.
