It’s normal for all of us to feel anxious from time to time, but when anxiety becomes overwhelming it can have lasting consequences for our mental health, wellbeing, and relationships with the people closest to us.
Anxiety is often triggered by changes in our lives that lead to uncertainty. It can be connected to concerns about money or a job, personal relationships, or the way some social situations make us feel. With exam results being published over the next couple of weeks, anxiety can also be triggered by worries around GCSEs and A-Levels.
This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week chose anxiety as its theme. More information about the condition and strategies for managing anxiety can be found on the Mental Health Foundation website at https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/our-work/public-engagement/mental-health-awareness-week
