Stress Awareness Month

April is Stress Awareness Month

The theme is ‘Little by Little’ – it can be small actions which help make big changes.

A small amount of stress can help us to complete tasks and feel more energised, but when stress interferes with our lives, it becomes a problem. Too much stress for too long, can make us ill. If unaddressed, stress can cause mental health issues like depression or anxiety and harm our physical health.

There are lots of useful resources on the Stress Management Society website as well as on the national Mind site.

If you feel you may have an issue with managing stress, contact us at Guernsey Mind as we have a supported self help module designed to help.

I need help…

Seeking help is often the first step towards getting and staying well, but it can also be hard to know how to start and where to turn.
 
It is always OK to ask for help.

Someone I know needs help

It can be very difficult to see someone who you care about becoming unwell, but you don’t need to be an expert on mental health to offer support. Often small, everyday actions can make the biggest difference.
 

I need urgent help

At Guernsey Mind, we cannot provide a crisis service. If you need urgent help:

– Talk to someone you trust
– Contact your GP and request an urgent appointment
– Contact the Samaritans on their free and confidential helpline 116 123
– If you are concerned you might harm yourself or someone else, contact the Emergency Department on 01481 220000 or the emergency services on 999.

Support for under 18s

At Guernsey Mind, we offer support to those aged 18 and above, but there are some other places you can go to for support and advice.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2023

2023 was a busy year for the team at Guernsey Mind. You can see some of the things we’ve been up to in our Review of the Year.

Guernsey Mind has been re-awarded the Mind Quality Mark

Mind Quality Mark Logo

The Mind Quality Mark is a rigorous quality assurance standard. It sets the bar of good practice and legal compliance for all organisations in the Mind Federation.

Once every three years, local Minds are reviewed against the Mind Quality Mark standards. The reviews are led by people with lived experience of mental health problems and senior leaders from other local Minds. They are based on a robust assessment of documentary evidence as well as interviews with and survey responses from directors, staff, volunteers, and people who use services.

To achieve the Mind Quality Mark, local Minds must be well-run organisations delivering safe, life-changing support for people with mental health problems.
