Stigma-Free UC presents: Anxiety — from boredom to burnout
For many of us, stress and anxiety are part of life – standard responses to the challenges we experience every day. When we start to feel overwhelmed, we may wonder: When does stress begin to affect mental health? When is anxiety a symptom of a psychiatric illness that warrants professional help? And finally, how can we improve our brain health?
Robert Bota, associate clinical professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at UC Irvine, will address these questions and more in a webinar on Feb. 19. Dr. Bota’s professional work focuses on the interplay between psychiatric illnesses and medical conditions, and explores innovative ways to address the whole spectrum of patients’ psychosomatic needs.
This will be the last of our 12-part Stigma-Free UC webinar series. Sponsored by the UC Systemwide WellBeing Initiative, this series raises awareness about mental health issues and reduces barriers to treatment. More information about UC’s behavioral health benefits, including free services through faculty and staff assistance programs, is available on UCnet’s behavioral health page.
All UC faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. The live webinar will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 19 from 11 a.m. to noon. Simply go to UCOP.zoom.us/j/5109879443. To listen by phone, dial (669) 900-6833; meeting ID: 510 987 9443.Tags: events, mental health, wellness
