April is Stress Awareness Month, an opportunity to help break the stigma around stress - talk about stress and its effect on yourself, colleagues, friends and loved ones.
While it’s completely normal to feel stressed, chronic or excessive stress can be a significant problem. It's important to recognise these signs or feelings and how to overcome them and learn how to manage stress caused by work.
Visit our coping with stress and burnout for self-help resources on:

Stress can sometimes develop into feelings of fatigue or burnout if not addressed. Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest and motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.
