The HSE Dublin North East is inviting all interested members of the public to attend a free course on managing stress, starting this morning May 12.
The course will run for six Monday mornings (not including Monday 2nd June) from 11am to 1pm in the Fairways Hotel, Dublin Road, Dundalk, Co Louth.
The 'Stress Control' programme is aimed at anyone who is stressed or anyone who knows someone who is stressed. The course will be delivered by HSE clinical psychologists, Dr Mark Harrold and Dr Ciaran Wynne.
Dr Harrold said: "Life can be very stressful for many people. It is often hard to identify the cause of stress in our lives and harder to tackle it.
"But it is manageable. This practical course will assist participants to identify the symptoms of stress, and to manage its effects. Do not let stress take over your life any longer. Tackle it head on with the simple but effective strategies you will learn on this course," he said.
Participants will all receive written handouts and a free CD.
