The impact of stress on the body and how you can help to reduce it

Stress Awareness Month has been held every April for the last 32 years to raise awareness of the causes and cures for our modern day stress epidemic.

The body’s response to stress is a natural defence mechanism, otherwise known as the ‘fight’ or ‘flight’ response. Despite this, many people feel a lot of guilt and shame around stress, particularly when it comes to mental health.

We know that stress can have a significant impact on both physical and mental wellbeing, and chronic stress can lead to various health issues. To help bring clarity to the topic of stress, our mental health experts have shared some of the most common ways stress can impact the body and tactics to help you better manage the stress in your day-today life.
