Wellbeing is a state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Stress affects wellbeing and mental health and is common while doing a Doctorate due to many factors including the uncertainty of research, time pressures and the nature of high-level study. This workshop helps identify stressful incidents, your responses to these and potential coping strategies. Stress-management techniques are practiced and an individual action plan is developed to enhance your wellbeing.
