Stress Awareness Week

 

 

 

Stress is a commonly used word. In the modern world being under pressure and stressed can almost seem ‘normal’. Whilst stress is not a psychological diagnosis, feeling overwhelmed by stress and the feelings this can bring, can affect our mental health.

Feeling overwhelmed by stress can lead us to not having time or motivation to look after ourselves, which in turn can lead to mental health issues like anxiety and depression. 

This year marks the 23rd year of Stress awareness day and the subsequent development in 2018 of stress awareness week. The focus of this year’s stress awareness week is around the challenges people with mental health face and how employers are responding to this. Continued campaigning against the stigma associated with mental health and stress and the role of professionals in this. As well as the continued impact of the pandemic on stress and how changes to working practices may continue in the future.
