About The Project
In the context of our modern society, stress has become one of the biggest threats to an individual’s health and safety. Given its "invisible" characteristic, stress tends to be overlooked thus unaddressed, creating favorable premises for the development of both psychological and physical illness.
In a very concise definition, stress is an automatic physical and mental response to challenges or any situation that forces an individual to adapt to change. It is therefore clear that this response has a constant presence in our lives, in our professional, personal, and social endeavors. In this context, developing the necessary skills and accessing the proper tools to identify and manage specific risk factors has become a very important element for any individual thriving to lead a healthy lifestyle.
