This year’s Mental Health
Awareness Week (14-20 May) is focused on stress.
Research has shown that two
thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our lifetimes, and stress is
a key factor in this.
By tackling stress, we can
go a long way to tackle mental health problems such as anxiety and depression,
and, in some instances, self-harm and suicide.
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.
It is estimated that 1 in 6
people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem. Mixed
anxiety & depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain, and can
be exacerbated by stress.
At Mantra, we support MIND,
the mental health charity, with all their work to raise awareness of, and
remove the stigma around, mental health issues.
In their year’s campaign for
Mental Health Awareness Week, MIND are especially focused on stress in the
workplace, helping employees and employers create a mentally healthy workplace
where everyone feels valued and supported.
Mental Health Awareness Week
2018 is a great time to think about how we can all address the causes of stress
in our lives, and in the lives of our friends, family and colleagues.
