National Stress Awareness Day – which falls on the first Wednesday in November each year – is a great opportunity to think about our wellbeing.
Considered a given part of fast-paced modern life, we all know what it feels like to be stressed but when it starts to become overwhelming, it can lead to more serious problems and even trigger poor mental health.
Some 12 million people visit their GP with mental health problems annually, many of whom are dealing with stress, according to the Mental Health Foundation.
If your thoughts, feelings & stresses are becoming overwhelming then remember that free support is available from Breathing Space. They aim to provide:
- an alternative and easily accessible ‘first stop’ service
- assistance at an early stage in order to stop problems escalating
- empathy, understanding and advice through active listening
- hope when none exists
- direction for those who do not know where to seek help
So don’t let problems get out of hand. Give Breathing Space a call on 0800 83 85 87 where experienced advisors will listen and offer information and advice. http://breathingspace.scot/ #NSAD17 #nationalstressawarenessday
