After a survey commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation it calls for more help in managing stress as 59% of British adults say their life is more stressful than it was five years ago.
Money and work are the top survey results as main causes of stress in Britain and more worryingly people three times more likely to drink alcohol to help deal with stress than would go to a GP or seek professional help.
Apart from the obvious benefits that early prevention has for people who are stressed it highlights that “In addition, admitting people to hospital for stress is usually an expensive solution to a problem that should have been solved earlier in a primary care or workplace setting. We must invest in less costly, more effective early intervention services for people experiencing such stress instead of waiting for people’s distress and symptoms to require a hospital admission”
