April is Stress Awareness month

Stress Awareness Month is an annual event held in April when health care professionals and health promotion experts across the country join forces to increase public awareness about stress.

The COVID-19 pandemic has proved particularly challenging. A study by Mental Health Foundation titled “Mental Health in the Pandemic” has shown that lockdown periods have been difficult times for many of us. The longer we stayed in lockdown, our ability to cope was reduced, and for those experiencing additional challenges, such as unemployment, disruption of education, home schooling or isolation, these have been extremely trying times.

Come and see our collection of leaflets, posters and teaching resources for you to use with your patients, or order them via our Health Promotion page on our website.
