Address your Stress! Mental Health Awareness week

Hi All, next week the Mental Health Foundation is holding mental health awareness week and they’ve shared their mental health toolkit and resources with us. This year the campaign is leading with the theme of stress, asking the question, ‘Stress: are we coping?’. It will seek to highlight the impact stress has on us all, and the connection between stress and our health – both mental and physical. Please have a look at the resources – they might form a really useful basis for a session with your mentee, particularly if she’s got exams coming up.

The Address Your Stress Toolkit
To support the campaign, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England are today launching the Address Your Stress Toolkit: a set of practical resources designed to help people better understand and manage stress.
