Today (7th November 2018) is International Stress Awareness Day...

It is important to spare some time, even if it isn't still the 7th November 2018 when you read this...

First step is knowing when there is a problem, and when to ask for help or have someone to talk with.

So if you're reading this on the 7th November or not, spare some time and take the NHS Mood Self Assessment test:

The NHS has provided a Mood Self-Assessment test that is free to use. At the end you can receive some advice on the next steps.

Whilst there are some natural herbal remedies that can help give a boost, and for some, fitness or exercising can also help lower stress and depression, but we would also recommend contacting your Doctor if you feel you are suffering from high stress or serve depression.
