Today is the last day of Stress Awareness Month; a 30 day period dedicated to increasing public awareness about both the causes and cures for our modern-day stress epidemic.
Stress Awareness Month has been held every April since 1992; but despite it’s longevity, the Mental Health Foundation states that 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point over the last year that they have felt overwhelmed or unable to cope.
