What are signs of stress & depression?

  • Getting angry, irritated, restless, or frustrated easily
  • Frequently feel tired or have low energy
  • I have lost interest in people, activities, and things I used to enjoy
  • I have sleep problems (like falling asleep, too much or too little sleep)
  • I frequently feel sad, or just can’t bring myself to care about things
  • I have trouble concentrating or remembering things
  • I drink too much or abuse drugs or prescription medication
  • I think I’ve lost my sense of humour
  • I have frequent headaches, chronic pain or stomach trouble that doesn’t seem to go away and doesn’t respond to ordinary treatment

Tips for self-care & positive mental health

  • Eat well – Proper nutrition fuels the brain and body
  • Get enough sleep – Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. It can give you more energy and help you concentrate
  • Be active – Exercise for 30 minutes, 5 days a week can improve your physical and mental health
  • Decrease or stop using alcohol or drugs – These can make stress and depression worse
  • Structure & routine – Have regular wake up and bed times. Plan activities such as going for a walk or going to the gym, etc.
  • Laugh & have fun – Laughing releases chemicals that make you feel good. Increased blood flow relaxes the muscles
  • Talk to someone – A close friend, a family member or a co-worker about what is happening
  • Seek professional help – Doctor, Counsellor, or Mental Health Professional
  • Remember – There is help out there. You are not alone. #SignOfStrength
