Since 1992, April has been designated as Stress Awareness Month. According to the American Institute of Stress, about 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress related disorders, ranging from stomach trouble to heart disease. Job related stress costs American businesses about $150 billion a year.
AmeriHealth has put together an entire Stress Awareness Employer Toolkit that you can use to coordinate employee sessions on how to handle stress. Among the items are quiz, fact sheets, flyers, and resources.
