Feeling stress or anxiety constantly can develop symptoms of muscle tension, shallow or fast breathing at the same time combined with a high heart rate, increased blood pressure, sweating and the secretion of adrenaline. If a person has been feeling stress or anxiety for a long period of time, they are more prone to all sorts of physical symptoms such as insomnia, hair loss, headaches, dizziness, hypertension, sensitivity to cold and possibility to develop serious illnesses.

Aside from the vulnerability of health, mental health will be in great danger if someone is in a state of mental depression and over-stress for a long period of time. Without careful handling long-term depression or stress, it could lead to the occurrence of mental illness! Since stress is unavoidable in life, it then becomes a very important issue in finding ways to deal with different levels of stress in everyday life. With an appropriate response to these stresses, we can reduce the effect stress has on us.

Stress management can lower the levels of stress in everyday lives. CMHA Employment Project targets this point by inviting a clinical psychologist Dr Christine Tseng to be at the ‘Stress Management’ workshops. This workshop is for the purpose of service users to find out how to view stress in a positive manner and how to handle stress factors in everyday lives so as to look after mental health well-being.

CMHA Employment Project aims to help Chinese people in London who suffer from mental health issues to gain and retain employment. Anyone who is interested in joining the project or attending this free ‘Stress Management’ workshop, please contact the project worker Khim.
