WellBIST workshop

by Chris Barratt

Anxiety is a normal part of everyday life. However, when people experience frequent, intense or persistent anxiety it can have a negative impact on daily activities, can be difficult to control, and become out of proportion or inappropriate to the situation. This can lead to avoiding places or situations to prevent these feelings.

The objective of this interactive, in person workshop is to build knowledge and awareness of anxiety, to understand why we have it and how we can better manage it to reduce it’s negative impact on our lives.
