UMB Parents and Caregivers Discussion: Reducing Stress and Anxiety

Wednesday, March 10 at 1 p.m.

Caregiving can be rewarding but also extremely stressful. It's often a full-time responsibility and demanding. This responsibility is often in addition to work, school, and/or raising a family. You most likely became a caregiver because you are compassionate, patient, loving, and dependable. However, caregivers are vulnerable to stress and burnout which affects physical and emotional health. During this session, we will discuss what caregiving stress looks like and techniques to help reduce stress/anxiety. This discussion is led by Michael Azen, MA, MS, Equity & Access Compliance Investigator and Deputy Title IX Coordinator at UMB.
