Invitation to Doing What Matters in Times of Stress – Live Conversation

Join us on Friday, 14 January, at 12 noon (AST) for a live conversation  with experts to present the publication "Doing what matters in times of stress: an illustrated guide. Adapted version for the Caribbean".The conversation will be broadcast on the PAHO Caribbean Facebook page (@PAHOWHOCaribbean) and PAHO´s Twitter account (@PAHOWHO). 

There are many causes of stress, including personal difficulties (e.g., conflict with loved ones, being alone, lack of income, worries about the future), problems at work (e.g., conflict with colleagues, an extremely demanding or insecure job) or major threats in your community (e.g., violence, disease, lack of economic opportunity), and the challenges in facing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Doing What Matters in Times of Stress is a WHO stress management guide for coping with adversity. The version to be presented in this conversation is an illustrated adaptation for the English-Speaking Caribbean countries, published by the Caribbean Development Bank and the Pan American Health Organization.
