Virtual Event

The Impact of Work Stress
Workplace stress has adverse effect on workers’ mental health, with an increased risk of anxiety, burnout, depression, and substance use disorder. Today, we are living in the bodies of our ancestors in a world they never dreamed would exist. We inherited the adaptive responses that enabled them to survive, but we use our natural survival mechanisms as an over-response to circumstances that are (usually) not really life-threatening.

Key Topics:

  • Stress is “remembered”
  • Stress: acute v. chronic
  • What the organization can do to reduce stress
  •  What we can do for ourselves to reduce the effects of stress

Nellie Brown is the director of Workplace Health and Safety Programs for both the Outreach Division statewide and for the Buffalo Co-Lab of Cornell University’s ILR School.
