Physiological Wellbeing: The biology behind too much stress

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a particularly challenging time for practitioners from many organisations.  Following positive feedback from a recent multi-agency session on stress run by Sgt. Dr. Zöe Billings from North Yorkshire Police, a further three workshops have now been arranged. These are open to any practitioners working in York.

We often talk about anxiety and mental ill health, but we rarely link them to the biological signs and effects of chronic stress.

This session explains some of the common biological effects when stress reaches a tipping point, so you can learn to:

  • listen to what your body is telling you
  • help your body and mind return to a healthier state

This session will be hosted by Sgt. Dr. Zöe Billings, from North Yorkshire Police.

16 March – 9.45am to 11.00am

18 March – 9.45am to 11.00am

19 March – 1.45pm to 3.00pm

**Please note that the advertised start time for these sessions is 15mins in advance, to allow people to log onto Zoom in plenty of time
