The coronavirus crisis is placing increased mental health pressure on everyone. Which is why Dignity Street is playing our part by making our stress-relieving audio downloads by our founder David Briscombe free to everyone, and we have also disabled the need to register, making downloading immediate.
This resource page will be updated, here you will be able to find more information and support over the coming days and weeks. We are working on a range of support services which we will provide both during the pandemic crisis and when it is over, as the after effects on peoples’ mental will last for weeks, months and even years.
These will include expanded online support and courses for people in our Cardiff HQ when the crisis is over.
The Dignity Street Foundation understands that for many in our community especially those who struggle with mental health issues stress and anxiety, the current coronavirus outbreak is triggering unprecedented stress and anxiety, especially with such heightened media attention.

How the Downloads will Help You
What happens to the body when you relax?
When you relax your body responds in a number of ways, including:
Your breathing becomes deeper and slower.
Your heart rate decreases and slows down.
The blood flow to the extremities increases.
Your hormones become more balanced.
Your overall metabolism is slowed down.
These elements of relaxation are beneficial for both your physical health and your mental well-being, but what’s the best way to experience deep relaxation?
Find a comfortable place If possible where you will not be disturbed, choose a comfortable position in which to relax if you are sitting in a chair, try and find a comfortable position that will support your head, sit with your legs uncrossed and slightly apart and place your hands in your lap or the arms of the chair. If you are lying down keep your legs uncrossed and allow your arms to rest either side of your body.
Our downloads will help you from the moment you start to use them and research shows that for maximum benefit they should be listened to at least once a day, on headphones/earbuds, and played for a minimum of 21 days .
We also have on the site articles that provide helpful information and expert tips for managing anxiety during this difficult period. Again, please share these resources with family, friends and with your Facebook and Twitter communities.
