Stress is now the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK today. It can have a drastic effect on our productivity, confidence and mental well-being – and if left unaddressed can lead to serious mental and physical health problems.

Understanding the physical process behind the stress response and identifying our own triggers and reactions can help us to manage stress more effectively and reduce its damaging impact on our lives. Using a combination of real-life stories, expert insight and original drama, this short course looks at the nature of stress and its impact on our health and explains what we can do to combat it and support our general mental well- being.
