The theme of this year's awareness week is anxiety

Anxiety is something everyone can experience in their life. Some of the reasons for feeling like this can be linked to a job, study, a relationship, social situation, how we feel about ourselves or a change in our life. It is a normal emotion, but the more often and the longer we feel anxious, the more it can become a problem and affect our day to day life.

Dealing with anxiety can be hard, but there are tools and techniques to help manage these feelings. The Mental Health Foundation has produced some useful suggestions on coping with feelings of anxiety. You may also like to explore the resources on the staff health and wellbeing pages.
