#StopStressTogether

Join us for Mental Health Awareness Month and #StopStressTogether

Stress doesn't discriminate against age, sex, ethnicity, or religion. We all experience the burden of stress at some point in our lives, but few of us know how to manage our stress effectively. Not everyone deals with stress the same way, and we all have different coping mechanisms to handle stressful situations. What's yours? This Mental Health Awareness Month, let's share our tips and #StopStressTogether.

The truth about stress.

Stress isn't always noticeable just by looking at someone. Some of the top concerns we stress out about include money, projects at work, job security, relationships, and health issues. Exposure to long term stress can cause a number of physical and mental health concerns, including headaches, difficulty sleeping, depression, anxiety, and more. In fact, the American Institute for Stress claims that: 

77%

of people experience stress that affects their physical health.

73%

of people have stress that impacts their mental health.

80%

of people feel stressed at work.
