Sabina, Dave and Berni all recognised they were struggling to control their stress. Signs of stress can vary by person but common signs include feeling on edge, angry, unable to switch off, tearful, having poor concentration.
Each of them reached out to Leeds IAPT, either through their GP or by referring themselves by calling 0113 843 4388. To help manage their stress, anxiety or depression, it was recommended they attended the 'Stress Control' course. This runs for six weeks at venues across Leeds, at times in the day or evening.
