What is stress?

HSE define stress as the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demands placed on them.  Work-related stress is not just confined to particular sectors but is widespread across all types of workplace - and is on the increase. 

According to the TUC website, surveys conducted by trade unions and others have confirmed that spending cuts in the public sector and job insecurity throughout the economy after the banking crisis are causing increasing levels of stress.
