Mental Health - Raising Awareness
Here at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, our e-journals extend far beyond just music, drama, dance, film and TV, but today's offer by publisher Routledge nonetheless provides a generous offer of quality articles that we might not otherwise be able to access.
So, here's the deal (quoting from the emailed circular that we received today):-
"To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, Routledge have compiled a free article collection on Anxiety."For one week each May, the Mental Health Foundation raises awareness of a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week. This year's theme is Anxiety, one of the leading causes of mental ill-health around the world.
Featuring over seventy leading articles from our Behavioral Science portfolio, this collection is hosted in one handy place and is completely free to access until July 31st 2014.

Our RCS Counsellor shares some useful weblinks about mental health:-
The Mental Health Foundation is focusing on the theme of anxiety this week, as one of the leading causes of mental ill-health. Anxiety is defined as ‘an on-going sense of worry without a specific cause’. Around 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem such as anxiety each year and many of them will not seek help to get a diagnosis.
To help address this the Mental Health Foundation has produced a booklet which examines what anxiety is, the different types of anxiety, how it affects us and how to manage it if we feel that it is going beyond a healthy level and causing us distress.
