Many of us have experienced stress in some form or another. Especially over the past year, when so many things have changed. Our work routines have been disrupted and our social lives restricted. Responsibilities can weigh heavily. For those who are employed, work pressure may have increased. Working from home, either in isolation or alongside children, housemates and others, can bring new challenges. April marks the start of Stress Awareness Month, an opportunity to increase awareness of the causes and the impact of stress. This year’s theme is ‘regaining connectivity, certainty and control’, and many of us could do with recapturing a bit more of each.
Being unemployed can be extremely stressful. Things may feel out of control, contributing to negative thoughts and feelings. For some, the pandemic has resulted in lost work and even greater financial insecurity.
Our employment service to wounded and sick veterans doesn’t just get them a job, it helps them take back control of their lives.
For the wounded and sick veterans we support, finding employment can be a long journey. It’s about more than just finding the right job. It’s often also about gaining confidence, seeing things afresh, striking a good balance and finding a new sense of purpose.
We know that being employed boosts overall health and quality of life. Our team of employment consultants work closely with veterans to build their confidence and independence. We listen carefully, helping them to take a step back and look at their situation and their priorities.
