New research from the Mental Health Foundation has found that, over the past year, three quarters (74%) of people have at some point felt so stressed that they felt overwhelmed and unable to cope.

Their new report, Stress – Are We Coping?’, was released today to mark Mental Health Awareness week. The report looks at the prevalence of stress in the UK and its implications,  focussing on what both we as individuals can do to manage and reduce stress, as well as giving recommendations to Government for national measures.

Partners across Bristol are launching a citywide mental health initiative this Spring called ‘Thrive Bristol’. One of the first priorities is to look at mental health at work.
