Feeling a bit stressed?

By now those of you who had a break are back into work life, with school and university not too far away. It is worth thinking about managing the stresses some will feel when day to day life combines with the ongoing annoyances, frustrations, and perversities of post-earthquake life.

Here are some of the resources available. Click on the name of the organisation to go to the relevant web site. If in doubt, contact one of us.

If it is the weekend, or the middle of the night, try one of these lifted from the Canterbury Web Health page.
