Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 – Stress: Are We Coping?

Today is the start of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek. This week is all about stress and how we cope with it in our day-to-day lives and what support is available to you.

We all know what it’s like to feel stressed – it’s part of everyday life. But when you’re overwhelmed by stress it may lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 is a great time to think about how we can all address the causes of work-related stress.

At tpm we support Mental Health Awareness Week and are a TimetoChange Mental Health Champion.

We have taken some great resources from Mind UK to help employers and employees deal with stress at work…

For Employees

For us to maintain our well-being, noticing what makes us stressed helps us learn how we can deal with it. This is particularly important in work where stresses of workload and working relationships are common. In fact, work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives, more so than debt or financial problems.

The information below includes ways you can help yourself feel less stressed and how to get support.
