Supporting a Friend or Co-Worker Suffering From Stress Being a "Friend in Deed"
Stress is an unpleasant fact of life. We all experience it from time to time, and we each have our own way of dealing with it.

When those around us feel the pressure, we may need to step in and help them out. You can explore strategies for doing this in our articles, Supporting a Friend or Co-Worker Suffering from Stress and When Tears Take Over.

Practical coping strategies are important in helping others to overcome stress, but simple friendship and compassion make a difference, too. Our article, Random Acts of Kindness, is packed with tips for making someone else's day that little bit better.
