Simon edelsteins radio interview
More and more people are suffering stress, due to work, money, relationship issues and so much more, left unmanaged, these can develop into health problems.

The total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2014/15 was 440,000 cases, a prevalence rate of 1380 per 100,000 workers. The number of new cases was 234,000, an incidence rate of 740 per 100,000 workers. The estimated number and rate have remained broadly flat for more than a decade. The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2014/15 was 9.9 million days. This equated to an average of 23 days lost per case. In 2014/15 stress accounted for 35% of all work related ill health cases and 43% of all working days lost due to ill health.  Stress is more prevalent in public service industries, such as education; health and social care; and public administration and defence. By occupation, jobs that are common across public service industries (such as health; teaching; business, media and public service professionals) show higher levels of stress as compared to all jobs. The main work factors cited by respondents as causing work related stress, depression or anxiety (LFS, 2009/10-2011/12) were workload pressures, including tight deadlines and too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support.

Stress is something we experience all the time on some level - it arises out of any interaction between us and the environment.
In any situation there are demands from the environment to which we respond. In meeting those demands we experience a level of stress.
This can be either an unpleasant, uncomfortable experience, or one that is acceptable and enjoyable. When the demands of a situation are balanced by our capability to respond, we are comfortable.

What is Stress - Our Perceptions?
Stress is based on our own experience
The idea was popularised in the 1950s by Dr Hans Selye - who looked at what happens when animals are put under extreme conditions.
The word 'stress' became an umbrella term to describe all the various pressures we face in life.
A 'stressor' is the inside or outside event that we perceive to have produced the stress
In scientific terms, stress is the "non-specific response in our case the human mind and body to any pressure or demand".
The organism undergoes a generalised physical response in its efforts to adapt to the demands and pressures it experiences.
Disease (dis - ease) can result from failed attempts to react to stressful conditions.
It is therefore not the potential stressor itself, but how we perceive it and then how we handle it that determines whether or not it leads to 'stress'.
Small things and unwanted demands can cause stress.
Psychological factors are an important part of our response to physical stressors. Control is an important psychological factor.
Danzae Pace ~ "Stress is the trash of modern life - we all generate it but if you don't dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life "
Therefore those with the greater resources (coping strategies) will deal more effectively with it.
Resources are internal - beliefs about how you handle adversity, 'so what' attitude, philosophical/religious beliefs ... - and external -family, friends and group support.

What does the law require employers to do?
Employers have duties under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, 1999, to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities; and under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, to take measures to control that risk. There are practical things that organisations can do to manage the risks associated with work related stress.What does the law require employers to do?
