Seminars Conferences and WorkshopsImpacts of ongoing stress on mental health and wellbeing, and implications for policy seminar at Flinders in the City
Join the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity Policy Club to reflect on how chronic stress influences adults’ and children’s mental health and wellbeing, and what policy responses are needed at their seminar, "Impacts of ongoing stress on mental health and wellbeing, and implications for policy".
Chronic stress is a key pathway by which social factors get 'under the skin' to affect physical or mental health and wellbeing. Chronic stress is an equity issue because exposure to stressors is more frequent among people experiencing higher socioeconomic disadvantage. With the establishment of Wellbeing SA, there is the potential to explore possible policy responses to address chronic stress.
When: 5.15pm to 6.30pm Tuesday 11 February 2020 (followed by refreshments and nibbles)
