Feeling stressed and anxious? Are you overwhelmed with everything going on around you? Dealing with stress can sometimes feel challenging but it’s manageable with understanding and the right tools. In this series on Stress and Anxiety, you will be taken step-by-step learning about recognizing the physical and psychological signs of stress followed by four weeks of learning about different ways to help you lower your anxiety and feel more in control.
Our mental health is not a separate entity from our physical health. One naturally impacts the other. When we are anxious or depressed we feel it in our body and can even show physical symptoms. Specific medical procedures (ie heart surgery) can trigger depression. Wellness is the balance between the mental/physical, and emotional/spiritual.
In this workshop, Susan Cohn, RSS Clinical Social Worker, will spend some time discussing the stigma around getting mental health treatment, how to find a balance between the physical and mental, and discuss certain lifestyle activities that can help to promote good mental health.
