About this CPPD program

Stress is the body’s non-specific response to any demand made on it that can cause exhaustion and physical or psychological illness, heart attacks and accidents. But it is important to remember that in certain forms stress is normal and essential providing a way to express talents and pursue happiness. As our body responds to various forms of physical or psychological stress certain changes take place. These include increased heart rate, blood pressure and secretions of stimulatory hormones and they occur whether stress is positive or negative. Continual exposure lowers the body’s ability to cope with additional forms of stress.
Often we become anxious when the pressure's on, we struggle to calm our nerves in the midst of stressful situations and these are very normal feelings. Sometimes, however, these worries can become overwhelming even in our day-to-day routines. Extreme anxiety can inhibit our everyday life and anxiety about a particular situation can cause us to feel worried about everything else.
Depression is a very personal experience that millions of people all over the world experience. Different people manifest different symptoms, but one thing is certain: depression is a difficult illness that can destroy your life if left unresolved. Many people with depression describe it as a sense of despair that engulfs everything they do and everything they feel. Depression is much deeper and more invasive than sadness or frustration. It takes everything away from you; it saps your energy, focus, concentration, and especially your joy. You just don't care about anything; nothing matters and even the people you love become unimportant. If you're depressed for a long period of time, you become accustomed to the feeling and any other emotion becomes unfamiliar and even frightening.
