Sashira raises awareness of stress this April

National Stress Awareness Month 2024

Stress is a big problem in the UK today.

According to the Stress Awareness Society, 79% of adults experience stress at least once a month, with 74% feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope at some point in the past year.

You can read Sashira’s story on our ‘Real Stories’ page, where she talks about how she flipped not only her understanding of pain, but of stress and trauma too. Her reflection on this difficult but useful journey is a powerful one.

If you’re struggling with stress and would like more advice, visit the Every Mind Matters website. Our Resources page also has a range of tools that can help with every aspect of your pain.

We're incredibly proud to have worked with and receive support from some fantastic organisations.
