Embracing Mental Health Awareness Week - Overcoming Anxiety

May 15th to 21st marks Mental Health Awareness Week here in the UK and this year, the Mental Health Foundation have chosen to centre the campaign around the theme ‘anxiety’. As strong advocates for mental health, we join the foundation in taking this opportunity to promote available resources that can provide support to those negatively affected by anxiety.


Recognizing the unique challenges faced by individuals struggling with anxiety, the pirkx platform serves as a valuable resource, specifically designed to address and alleviate this mental health concern. Our mission is to nurture hope and empower individuals to take control of their wellbeing. Read on to find out more about what’s available through the pirkx platform:


24/7 Counselling Services

We understand the critical importance of immediate and professional support in managing anxiety. Within our platform, individuals can access caring and highly trained counsellors who are available round the clock. Through private and supportive one-on-one sessions, individuals are encouraged to explore their anxieties, develop resilient coping mechanisms, and receive compassionate guidance to navigate their personal challenges.


"87%": An App for Building Mental Health Resilience

Harnessing the power of technology to facilitate mental wellbeing, we proudly bring you "87%," an innovative app available exclusively on the pirkx platform. This application provides a safe space for emotional healing and growth, offering a wealth of tools and interactive features to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and emotional wellbeing. "87%" accompanies individuals on their journey toward inner peace, helping them discover their own unique path to recovery.


Empowering Self-Help Workbooks

We strongly believe in the transformative power of self-empowerment and personal growth when conquering anxiety. Within the pirkx platform, members have access to a thoughtfully curated collection of self-help workbooks. These invaluable resources equip individuals with practical tools, empowering strategies, and step-by-step guidance to manage anxiety, fostering resilience and a sense of control over their mental well-being.


Newborn Advice and Debt Support

Recognizing that anxiety can affect various aspects of life, we extend our caring support to new parents and individuals dealing with financial stress. Through the pirkx platform, new parents can find comfort in expert advice and guidance tailored to their unique circumstances. At the same time, our dedicated Debt Support services provide valuable resources and effective strategies to help individuals manage their financial stress, which can alleviate a significant source of anxiety in their lives.


Resources: Discovering Resilience

To enhance our collective efforts, we encourage individuals to explore the Mental Health Foundation's website — a valuable resource full of expert knowledge and supplementary materials. By visiting their website at https://Inkd.in/dnwpHze, you can delve into a wealth of articles, research papers, and support networks, fostering a deeper understanding of anxiety and its management. Together, let's embark on a journey of healing, compassion, and triumph over anxiety's grip on our lives.
