Recent surveys have reported that stress levels in the U.S. are at
their highest in at least a decade, with the American Psychological
Association reporting that a full two-thirds of respondents to its recent
survey were stressed out about the nation’s future.
Our free, unique Community Forum—targeted to people of all ages who are
looking for ways to reduce stress– will bring a range of experts’ perspectives to
the growing phenomenon of stress, in hopes of detangling the physical and
psychological factors that are fueling an age of worry.
