Happy brain, healthy brain: an alternative view of managing stress.

Happy brain, healthy brain: an alternative view of managing stress.

Peter Simunovich - Rehabilitation Consultant, EMA OHS Facilitator and Conference speaker

Happy brain, healthy brain: an alternative view of managing stress.

Recent events have taxed many aspects of individual resilience and our ability to cope has become tested like never before. Still, mental health retains a stigma which prevents many from being open and honest about their experiences and though many recommendations are made for the management of stress related symptoms, sufferers are often not provided with sufficient understanding of the root cause of their emotions and how to rationalise them effectively. This presentation provides an outline of how and why we feel as we do when facing challenging situations.
