Anxiety. It touches us all in one way or another and that’s why it’s the theme for #mentalhealthawareness week.

Whether you are concerned about your health, money worries, exam stress or the general day to day its important to know that you can get help to soften and sometimes stem the noise and access the calm.

Checking in with our friends, colleagues and family regularly is key to mental strength and well being, but dealing with anxiety is hard and can often be all consuming.

The article attached by #mentalhealthfoundation for #mentalhealthawareness week highlights suggestions on how to cope in these often challenging times.

At #Shawston our employee owners are our business, so we make it our business to offer a calm and supportive network for all to access.

Reach out. It’s ok to not be ok.
