Our Mental Wellness is a new lecture series that will focus on mental health topics of broad interest to staff and students. The inaugural talk, presented by Associate Professor Jennifer Wild, will be on the subject of Managing Stress and Overcoming Anxiety. A panel discussion will follow, featuring Professor Robin Dunbar (evolutionary psychology) and Dr Polly Waite (adolescent clinical psychology).
About the talk:
Some people can cope with anything. They juggle two jobs, part-time studies, and raise a family with commitment and focus. They pursue a passion in teaching despite crippling self-doubt. Doctors diagnose them with an auto-immune condition and they manage with grace and ease. These people overcome enormous stress and anxiety. In this talk, you’ll discover 7 key tools to transform the stress and anxiety in your own life and the science of why they work.
