April marks the start of Stress Awareness Month, which affects hundreds of thousands of people across the UK each year. Long term stress can lead to mental health issues such as depression and illnesses such as heart disease. In 2020/21, 822,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety.
To help cope with stress in the workplace, we have put together a calendar of activities and techniques that you can try throughout the month of April. For even further support, you can find a list of support lines here.
