Being mindful of your mental health

Stress, depression, anxiety can affect anyone. One in three of us regularly feel stressed. One in four of us feel anxious One in five of us feel depressed.* 

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 session has a different focus, from learning to control your thoughts to controlling your body to helping you get a good night's sleep.
