When is National Stress Awareness Day 2021?

Millions of people around the world experience stress at some point in their lives, which can be damaging to our health and wellbeing.

And according to the Mental Health Foundation, at some point in the last year, 74% of us have felt so stressed that we have felt unable to cope.

As a result, becoming overwhelmed by stress can lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

 

What is Stress?

Stress is your body’s reaction to help you deal with pressure or threats; something which is sometimes called a “fight or flight” response.

Your stress hormone levels usually return to normal once the pressure or threat has passed.

A small amount of stress can be useful; it can motivate you to take action and get tasks completed while also making you feel alive and excited.

But too much stress can cause negative effects such as a change in your mood, your body and relationship issues.

 

About Stress Awareness Day?

National Stress Awareness Day this year will be held on the first Wednesday of November, the 3rd.

Rather like Mental Health Awareness Day, which was held on October 10th, this is a 24 hour period in which we are encouraged to realise that you’re not doing yourself any good by stressing about situations you can’t control.

It was established in 1998 by the International Stress Management Association (ISMA) to help provide information on stress, and strategies on how to address it for both companies and individuals.

The organisation is particularly focused on business relationships and reducing stress in the workplace.

Their aim is to help employers and employees support each other by providing comprehensive guides to establishing a program within their organization.

They also seek to assist individuals by encouraging them to look after their health and well-being on a day-to-day basis.

 

The Importance of a Mental Health First Aider

Your employee’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. In fact, if left untreated, mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression can lead to long-term absences in your work force.

By attending a Mental Health First Aid Course in Liverpool and offering your workers their own MHFA, your employees will be safe in the knowledge that you are offering them a safe place to confide and perhaps even seek help if they’re not comfortable speaking to family or friends.

Plus, by having a workplace that openly looks after the mental health well-being of staff, your company’s environment is bound to improve, benefitting all those who work there and maybe even increasing productivity.
