Little By Little, A Little Becomes A Lot...

This is this year’s Stress Awareness Month theme and Manchester Mind want to use this to encourage everyone to take the time to focus on their own mental health and to empower you to have conversations about stress and wellbeing with your friends, family, and in particular, within workplaces.

We all know what it is like to feel stressed, being under pressure is usually a normal part of life. But after the last few years and with ongoing life challenges and uncertainty, some of us are finding ourselves overwhelmed by stress. This can lead to mental health problems or exacerbate existing problems, cause exhaustion, physical illness and impact on every aspect of your life.

Manchester Mind have gathered together lots of information about stress, burnout, how to better manage your stress levels and build resilience. They will also be sharing information across our social media channels throughout the month.
