Learn more about stress at work is a useful booklet to accompany the guide. It will help you identify common stressors at work, explain what good and bad stress is and how you can use stress to your advantage.
You can find out more about resilience by visiting the Mental Health Foundation website. They have resources on mindfulness and a large section about your mental health.

This case study showcases the Good Care Group (TGCG) who mainly provide live-in care and employs over 500 care workers. They do not use agency staff and exclusively employ and train all their care staff.
Care workers need to be sufficiently trained and self-reliant to be able to function with less supervision than a daily care worker. TGCG was finding that, despite its employment model with a focus on caring for care workers, some were leaving within the first three months as they didn’t feel able to cope. This case study explains how they've tackled this issue.
