Carolina Grad Student F1RSTS: Being First-Gen–Stress and Resilience

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Stress is your body’s way of responding to demands and/or threats whether real or imagined and can be both positive as well as negative. Stress can also accumulate over time and start to have a significant effect on health and well-being.  When stress outweighs our resources, we find ourselves in a state of collapse. Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from stress. As a whole, resilience is a factor that can deflect the state of collapse and is a marker for wellness.
