We all stress and we all have different reasons that cause stress. What can we do to de-stress?
Fewer UK adults feel they are coping well with the stress of the pandemic. In April 2020, 73% said they were coping well but in February 2021, 64% said they were coping well. – MentalHealth.Org.Uk This reduction has stimulated us to investigate what some causes of stress can be in the heart of the Wirral, United Kingdom during the pandemic.
We also wanted to champion what local community groups and charities are doing to support individuals struggling with stress. This short documentary is only a snapshot and we want to use this to generate conversation about who in your local community supports people going through stress in life.
