A Solution to Stress and Burnout

Stress Management and Resiliency Training

Effective, Evidence-Based Techniques to Improve Resiliency and Cope with Challenges

Chronic stress is common — but not normal!

Does it sometimes feel like everyone around you is stressed? Whether it’s from work, school, family life, or anything else, Canadians have never been more stressed. Studies show that nearly half of Canadians report feeling ‘highly stressed’ at least once a week.

Stress and burnout aren’t just unpleasant or inconvenient. They’re bad for you! Did you know that mental and emotional stress may cause physical symptoms, from digestive issues to heart disease? Chronic stress reduces productivity and impacts relationships.
