Stress Awareness Week
01 Nov 18 - 31 Oct 19
We all experience stress in different ways and different situations in both our personal and professional lives. National Stress Awareness Week is 5–9 November - an opportunity for the Trust to flag up some useful tips and advice on how to recognise the signs and manage stress, before it becomes a problem.

This year’s theme is “Does hi-tech cause hi-stress?” ISMA has produced some useful information including how to identify stress and 10 key steps for stress-free living.
