To mark National Stress Awareness Month 2023 we’re here to support all Pharmacy Professionals.
You are seen in the community as someone who has their mind together and it’s never considered by the public that you have a life and stresses outside the Pharmacy. We know this isn’t the case. You have families, a life outside of the Pharmacy and natural stresses that come with this.
As an individual it’s identifying these stresses and seeking advice when it’s unmanageable.
Support For Pharmacists an independent charity have a relief page. You don’t need to be a Pharmacist to use this page, it has options for: Pharmacists, Trainees, Students and Dependants or anyone associated with Pharmacy.
It offers support on the following topics:
