Issues » Stress


Stress is psychological and physical strain or tension generated by physical, emotional, social, economic or work related circustances that are difficult to manage. If you struggle with stress over longer periods of time or a number of stressors it can lead to further difficulties like burnout or breakdown.  Stress can have huge impact on our mental health. 

Research suggests that stress contributes, in several illnesses, athough the illnesses can also have other physical causes as well. A link exists between stress and headaches, asthma, cardiovascular, hypertension and the immune system.

Stress can also result in behavioural responses including confrontation, withdrawal and avoidance.  The response to stress impairs task performance. Emotional responses include anger, hostility, embarrassment and depression.
