• Go on TryIt

    Health & Wellbeing

    We are bombarded with diet promises and stress solutions, so it can be hard to sort good health advice from the hype. For 2016 we're hoping that you will join us in putting some of these theories to the test, and so we have launched #TRYit. We have plenty more #TRYit challenges coming in the next few months so watch out. 

    In the coming months we'll be focusing on mental health. Experiencing stress, anxiety or depression is a normal part of life, but it's vital to recognise when you need help, talk to someone, and act to make changes. You're not alone. Our Health@Hand nurses are available 24/7 to offer support or just to listen.
