All staff are welcome to attend an event for National Stress Awareness Day from 12 noon – 2pm at Parkinson Court, Wednesday 7 November. UNISON University of Leeds will also be running a stall at the event which is being coordinated by the University of Leeds Staff Counselling and Psychological Support Service.

National Stress Awareness Day raises awareness about stress, its impact on us and ways to manage it. The event includes representatives from services and resources available to help us all deal with stress, including:

Stress affects us all at different times and in different ways. It affects us most when the demands and challenges in our work and lives exceed our personal and social resources to keep our balance. This year’s National Stress Awareness Day theme explores the question “Does Hi-Tech Cause Hi-Stress?” and considers whether technology might help with or contribute to our stress levels both at and outside of work.
