Support to help ease stress

April is Stress Awareness Month, and Dorset HealthCare is reminding people that support is available to help alleviate stress before it spirals out of control.

The trust has put together new webpage signposting wide range of support services available for people who are struggling to cope or feel they are in crisis.

It features a host of useful contact information, including where to access 24-hour telephone help and the chance to talk to someone online, as well as self-help resources and tailored support for children and young people.

Clare Hurley, head of Dorset HealthCare’s adult psychological services, said: “Many of us around the UK are experiencing high levels of stress. Not only does it have an effect mentally, but stress is also linked to physical health problems, such as heart disease, our immune system, insomnia and digestive problems. If you are feeling stressed and need support, we provide a range of services that are here to help you take the right step to guide your through.”
