Handling stress and mental health in the workplace

NHS poster saying How do you handle life's ups and downs? Every mind mattersEvery year 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem. Two of the most common are anxiety and stress. Low mood or sleep problems might also take their toll and affect your mental health.

What techniques can you use to manage stress?

What information and advice is available to help you to support colleagues or employees when they find life more of a challenge?

Following the success of the sessions we ran in Birmingham we are offering two more discovery sessions in Nottingham.

    Are there any plans to bring these sessions to other areas?
    Specifically anywhere in the Scottish central belt?

      David, I will pass your request onto the lead for Scotland. We are looking at how we can make more of our events available in more locations.
