Managing stress and anxiety
Working in the emergency services is a high-pressure job – and, in the COVID-19 outbreak, it is more important than ever that you are able to take time to manage your mental wellbeing.

They include information about the causes of stress, the ways it can affect you both physically and mentally, and tips for keeping it in check. It also includes real-life stories, so you can see how it has impacted others and see Mind’s advice in action.
