Mental Health Awareness Week

This week (14th-20th May) is Mental Health Awareness Week, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation. This years focus is related to "stress", and is a very important time for those with GCSE's, A-levels and University exams as well as the stress of work and everyday life.

The link below takes you to the Mental Health Foundations page with excellent articles on stress, including some statistics as well as tips to try and make this nation stress free. A stress quiz is also available to see how stressed you really are!! Whilst you are on there, click on the link to buy a mental health badge to help try and raise awareness, as all proceeds go to this incredible charity which are trying to find sources and strategies for mental health problems.

"Research has shown that two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our lifetimes, and stress is a key factor in this."
