We can’t stop difficult or challenging things happening to us, but that we can change the way we think about them and how they affect us. We have a range of resources to help you with managing stress and help you come to terms with what is happening.

Stress and anxiety can make you feel nervous, worried and tense which in turn can affect your appetite and your sleep patterns. In some cases anxiety can become so overwhelming that it leads to panic attacks, causing further fear and worry.

There are a range of self-help techniques to help you cope at difficult times. Find out more about stress and anxiety and how to manage them in the NHS Choices Moodzone, which includes some useful relaxation tips.
