Managing anxiety and stress

Facilitated by Lifelink

Everybody feels anxious at some point in their lives; starting a new job, trying to meet a deadline, sitting an exam, we expect to feel agitated and nervous. But when that anxiety is not managed it can develop into a more series mental health problem -an anxiety disorder, stress or depression.

For many professionals, facing workload pressures and funding cuts, anxiety has become an all too familiar part of their working life. Recent research suggests that as many as 1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety condition at some point in their lives.

This interactive workshop looks at the causes of stress in everyday life, how it affects our thinking and behaviour and what we can do to tackle stress effectively.
