What is Stress? Wellbeing Workshop

colleagues having a meeting

Most people are familiar with feelings of stress. Whilst it is a natural response to stressors throughout life, prolonged stress can have adverse effects on people’s lives and contributes to one of the biggest public health issues we are facing.

Although stress isn’t itself a mental illness, it can make us more vulnerable to experiencing mental ill-health. Furthermore, existing mental health issues can cause stress or be exacerbated by stress.

This workshop provides an introduction to the effects of stress and aims to build knowledge and understanding so that delegates feel better equipped to manage stress in their lives.
