National Stress Awareness Day – 7th November 2018

7th November 2018

As part of our Mental Health Awareness work, Hughes and Salvidge are recognising National Stress Awareness Day.

We regularly update our teams with Health and Safety information and have issued the following to all of our projects:

Held on Wednesday 7th November 2018, National Stress Awareness Day is run by the International Stress Management Association (ISMA).  The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the effects of psychological distress and the many coping strategies and sources of help available to address it.

What is stress and why is it important? 

Stress is a response to demands on your body and life. A response to crisis and fears. If stress gets overwhelming it can cause other mental health problems, emotional exhaustion and physical illness which can impact on work, relationships, families and every aspect of life.

When someone is suffering from stress they may not act or react normally in some situations.

It also takes courage to ask the question “are you okay?” when you are concerned about someone’s mental health, but by doing this you are giving the opportunity for a friend or colleague to admit that they are having a difficult time and start the road to making a change and healthy improvements.

There is great comfort to be given by simply listening and caring.

Remember: a simple conversation could change life and a gesture of compassion can have a profound effect on someone who is going through tough times.
