Progress has been in increasing public awareness of the damage stress can cause but we have got a long way to go. According to the Mental health Foundation 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point over the last year they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope.
Millions of us around the World are experiencing high levels of stress and it is damaging our mental and physical health. Stress is one of the major public health challenges of our time, but it still isn’t being taken seriously.
Stress is a major factor in mental health problems including anxiety and depression. It is also linked to physical health problems like heart disease, problems with our immune system, insomnia and digestive problems. Individually we need to understand what is causing us personal stress and learn what steps we can take to reduce it for ourselves and those around us.
