Stress Awareness Month
April marks Stress Awareness Month. Held every April since 1992 it aims to raise awareness of the causes of stress and how to ease and prevent stress.
Stress is one of the most common causes of long-term work absence in the UK and the awareness month is also used to guide how employers can help support their staff and provide practical steps that can be taken to address stress and help staff feel more positive and productive at work.
If you are planning an event to mark Stress Awareness Month, here are some speakers we work with that might be of interest.

Andrew Pain is a Mental Health and TEDx speaker, talking about; men’s mental health, burnout, imposter syndrome, decision-making, and domestic abuse (as a lived-experience survivor)
Andrew Pain was once a master procrastinator, chronic worrier, and victim of an abusive marriage (who also hated his job). He was a people-pleaser, he avoided conflict at all costs and his main goal in life was simply for everyone else to be happy: not exactly the kind of CV you might expect to see for a professional speaker!
But following the breakdown of his marriage and loss of his business in 2009, he rebuilt his life and is now thriving as a dynamic, down-to-earth, and entertaining speaker, on a mission to prevent burnout, create decisive and resilient communities of people, and promote gender unity.
