Mental health across financial services is a topic that has moved up the global agenda. It's been reported that consistent and continuous regulatory change has exacerbated the mental health of advisers and that high levels of stress and anxiety are causing financial advisers to leave the industry.
Feeling stressed, anxious and low in mood are all common feelings and symptoms that can affect our mental health. Here are some things to try, which might help.
Taking just a few minutes to sit and concentrate on your breath can do amazing things for your wellbeing during moments of anxiety.
If you think your mental health is deteriorating and you are not coping, there is lots of help out there. Talk to a family member, friend, your doctor or counselling service such as Mind, The Samaritans, Crisis service Canada, SADAG and Lifelines in New Zealand. There are many other organisations just a google search away. Don't suffer alone.
