Stressed about navigating a “post-Covid” world? You’re not alone! And help is at hand: join IP Ability on Monday 12 April, 12.30 – 1.30 pm for a webinar all about stress, ways that the evolving Covid situation may be contributing to it, and how to manage it. The webinar marks April being Stress Awareness Month and will be co-hosted by LawCare, a charity dedicated to supporting the legal community with mental health and wellbeing issues.

Let’s talk about stress…

Pressures and worries are lurking all around us, many of them magnified (or created) by Covid-19. Particularly so for people with health conditions and disabilities. While the planned re-opening in England of pubs, shops and more on 12 April spells huge relief for many, for a lot of people – both within and outside the disability community – the end of lockdown represents a source of stress and anxiety. With it come fears over things like returning to the office (Will I be forced back before I feel ready? I’ve managed my condition more easily at home, will I adjust ok?), resuming face-to-face interactions (Will I feel anxious? Remote access really helped me, will it disappear again now?) and vaccine passports (What if I can’t be vaccinated because of my disability? Will I be barred from going places?), to name but a few.

Our webinar will focus on some of these concerns, and look at ways to minimise and manage the associated stress. The running order will be:

  • An introduction to some members of the IP Ability community, who will discuss their particular concerns and challenges around the easing of lockdown; and
  • LawCare’s Chief Executive Elizabeth Rimmer will then present us with some tips and techniques for good stress management.

We look forward to seeing you there. With thanks to Finnegan for hosting this event.
