Mental health Awareness Week - STRESS TEST

The 14th - 20th May 2018 is Mental Health Awareness week and the focus this year will be on stress.

Stress is not a mental health problem in itself, but it is a key cause of mental health problems like depression and anxiety and is often linked to self-harm and suicide. Stress is also known to lead to physical health problems like muscle and joint pain and cardiovascular problems.

Spotting the signs of stress early is crucial to enabling us to manage it and ensuring it isn't allowed to develop into a more serious problem.

Why not take the Stress Test? created by the Mental Health Foundation.
