May 14 – 20 marks Mental Health Awareness Week and this year the focus is on stress.
The campaign’s aim is to highlight that managing and reducing stress can help to avoid developing mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
We’ve been talking to a few of our colleagues here at Bromford to find out what they do when the pressure starts to build. Take a look at their thoughts below and please feel free to share with your friends, family and colleagues.
How do we help?
We have a number of specialist housing developments for people living with mental ill health.
Our MyPlace schemes offer people living with an enduring mental health condition a safe and secure environment where they can live independently with the care and support they need for as long as they need to.
Patrick was diagnosed with bipolar and paranoid schizophrenia when he was 19 and has lived at Mallow Court in Wolverhampton for the last seven years.
Josie felt isolated before moving into MyPlace at Wood Hayes Place. Now she says feels comfortable in her new home, reassured that there's somebody there to talk to 24 hours a day should she feel lonely.
