Depression

It’s normal for people to be going through periods of feeling unhappy or feeling fed up. However, when you’re depressed this feeling of sadness persists for weeks or months, rather than the few days that most people experience. If you are suffering from depression, have a look at the NHS website or our depression self-help PDF below for more information on what depression is, and how it can be treated.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a word we use to describe feelings of unease, worry and fear. It incorporates both the emotions and the physical sensations we might experience when we are worried or nervous about something. We all know what it’s like to feel anxious from time to time. However some people find it harder to control their worries, and their feelings of anxiety are constant and affect their daily lives. If you, or a friend, are suffering from anxiety, have a look at the NHS website or our self-help PDF below for more information on what anxiety is, and how it can be treated.

Stress

Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand. It can be caused by both good and bad experiences. When people feel stressed, their bodies react by releasing chemicals into the blood. These chemicals give people more energy and strength, which can be a good thing if their stress is caused by physical danger. But this can also be a bad thing if their stress is in response to something emotional and there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength. Have a look at the NHS website, Help Guide Website, or our self-help PDF on stress below.
